A True Love Story Never Ends...

A while back I posted about a gallery wall I did in our bedroom. I was debating about which picture to put in the middle and still hadn't made a decision when I saw this on Pinterest:


As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the perfect quote to put on our wall.

First, I took the cardboard backing off the frame. I didn't want it to look as worn as the inspiration picture but I did want it have some texture so I started with a coat of blue paint.


To add some depth I did a coat of gray.


And then another coat of blue.


While I let the paint dry, I cut the vinyl lettering out using my Silhouette.

I used the mat to make sure the lettering was centered and adhered them using the process I described here.


Put it all back together and up on the wall. I love how it turned out, just what the gallery wall needed!!
