I know I know Valentines day is in 2 days so I am a little behind in posting this super cute plaque. But...I still wanted to share it because A. it is too cute not to share B. It is never too late to make a cute project for your own home or for a neighbor I mean come on we keep V-day decor up the whole month of February anyway...right? or is that just me? and C. because I think this is a decor piece that does not just have to be for valentines day it is cute enough and simple enough to keep up all year I think this would be so cute in a master bedroom in fact that is where this one is going as soon as February is over. It would also be cute on a gallery wall surrounded by wedding and family photos. Ok so now that I have convinced you to make this while Valentines day being two days away let me show you how fast and easy it really is.

This is not a sponsored post I just freaking love that place and I know you will too
How I Made it
First I just painted the plaque the ivory white. I did two coats, letting it dry completely between each coat and that was plenty of coverage
While the plaque was drying I painted the hearts Coral and the arrow metallic gold. I also did two coats on all the small pieces.
Then I decided the white was too plain for me and it needed a little something more so I used painters tape to tape off a stripe and painted it a charcoal grey..painting two coats and then removing the tape.
Once everything was dry I sanded down all the edges and the surfaces to make it look a little worn and antique. When it comes to painting projects I love to distress them up a little bit.
Lastly I used the wood glue to attach the hearts and arrows on the plaque just in the middle of the grey stripe. And you are done. Seriously it is so easy and fast.
I love how it turned out and I know you would love it in your home too. Looking for a fun gift to give someone you can easily whip up two or three at the same time.
