A few weeks ago, while we were at Kohl's shopping the after Christmas sales, I came across their Marquee signs and letters on a big discount. I had been wanting "LOVE" in metal letters and although these letters were red on the outside (which wasn't my favorite), I knew I could spray paint them another color, so I snatched them up because the price was too good to pass them up.
I debated spray painting the outside of them black, gray, and white, but since I had a can of white spray paint on hand and didn't want to go to the store, I decided to try white first. And I ended up loving them white.
I've tried them out in a few different places in our home, but really like them on my faux fireplace mantel where I can see them often. I don't usually do much, if any decorating for Valentine's Day, but I like that these letters are simple and understated in a way that works well with Valentine's Day but will also continue to work in the coming weeks of winter.
