Well, a new day has dawned in my house. A sweet pink and gold mantel for Valentine's Day. Never thought the day would come. As a boy mom, pink is definitely the least loved color in my house (I'm not even a huge fan!), but this year I was in the mood.
I whipped up the pink and gold glitter artwork using Double Sided Adhesive and my Silhouette. The candle holder was a DIY project for Christmas, knocking off a look from Restoration Hardware.
I also used my Silhouette to cut gold paper into circles and make these sweet, simple little garlands. I love them up there along with my chalkboard pennant banner.
The pink flowers I had on hand, just arranged them in a little pitcher.
The arrow is just spray-painted chipboard. I've decided I absolutely love Rustoleum's gold spray paint.
It is the best gold color in spray paints out there. The Hubs asked, "why is there a directional arrow on the mantel?" Men. Wondering how it's propped up?
Here's the long view:
Uh, let's try that again:
The verdict from the boys? Biggest said, "I love it!" and Little Boo called it "awesome." Huh. I guess pink isn't so bad after all!
