Friday, I'm in LOVE

If you ever listened to the Cure, you would know where the title came from. My husband proposed to me 16 years ago on a Friday and the first song I heard after, when I got in my car, it that song just happened to be playing. I thought it was so special.
Anyway.....I have been thinking a lot about Valentines Day and wanted to make something all about love, but nothing real good came to mind. Oh, I have had a few ideas, but not anything I just couldn't wait to make. You know what I mean?!
Well, I got my Lettered Cottage email today and it was full of beautiful images from Kristin Abler's home.  There is a sign in there with the word LOVE...see below...

the inspiration 
 ...and I just had to make my own version! I was totally motivated. Besides, I already had a square piece of wood painted white sitting on my table for 3 days waiting for me to paint something fun on it. 
I loved the vintage feel and simplicity of the original and I tried to capture that same style. I believe the original is a framed print, but mine is painted wood. I also painted a black border on it because the letters looked blah and lonely without it.

It was not quite ready to hang when I took the pics, but I didn't have much time before picking the kids up and I wanted to get some pics....

So, for a decorative look, I just rested it on my headboard against the wall. 

If you get a moment, skip on over to Layla's, the Lettered Cottage to check out the inspiration (there is pic of a wall of signs that is amazing & I want to make them all)!
