Valentine Love

I love decorating for Valentine's Day so much!  Red is also the primary accent color in my living room so it makes it easy to add in some fun Valentine pieces.  But it has to be the right shade, kind of an antique Barn red.  I found a few cute things in my favorite local shops and had fun making a few more.

I picked up these red bottles at GW the other day and knew I could make them into something fun.

I used some coffee beans as a filler for the tall bottle and added the pick from Hobby Lobby. A little burlap around the short bottle and a key and burlap string on the medium sized one. Displayed on a burlap covered charger, (also from Hobby Lobby) they make a fun centerpiece!

I also made a fun little sign for my mantle.  One perk of having new construction in your neighborhood is there is a lot of scrap wood available to scavenge!  I always stop by to see what 
they've thrown on the debris pile and find a lot of great 2x4 and 1x4 pieces.  They're the perfect size for signs.  

I painted this piece in my Barn red color.  I also painted a few shiny red heart shaped Christmas ornaments that came in a set from IKEA for a different project.  

I added a burlap heart, a key and a piece of burlap string.  They final touch was XOXO in the corner. I was going to paint them on but then I remembered I had these fun rub ons in a vintage font.  Love the finished product!
