When I started thinking about decorating for Valentine’s Day this year, I decided that I wanted to lighten things up a little bit from the bright pink and black that I’ve been using the last couple of years. I decided to sell my LOVE is all you need set, and pick up this fun new set of Stacking LOVE letters. When I first saw a picture of these love letters, I honestly thought they each were about 4″ tall. I was shocked when I went into The Wood Connection and they are 8″ tall each, so when stacked they are 16″. It is a lot larger than I thought it was, but it just makes it that much cuter!
I did run into a couple of issues when I was putting this one together. I had picked out these cute papers, and I picked out paints that I thought went with them, and once I got the letters painted and the paper put on, I didn’t like it. SO, I had to go back and use some lighter paint on 3 of the letters. Just FYI, it isn’t very fun to paint the edges of wood AFTER the paper is already on…but it worked, and I’m much happier with how they turned out with the lighter paint.
