The Little Red Owl

DIY ideas for home, health, & life


We all have failings in our lives right? Well, today I am sharing one of mine.

I decided to take a blank canvas I scored at the thrift store for 50cents and paint a fun LOVE quote on it for Valentine’s Day decor.

I knew right away that I wanted to do: “Love me, Love me, Say that you love me” from Lovefool by The Cardigans.

I got out my letter stickers and started applying them to the canvas.



I reached for the paint and saw the purple there. Against my better judgement I grabbed it and starting painting the canvas purple. Don’t get me wrong; I LOVE purple-it is my all-time favorite color BUT I generally do not decorate with it. It just doesn’t work in my home.



I HATE this. A few things are working against this “art”.

1. The purple paint just doesn’t work in my home

2. The paint bled underneath the stickers

3. I was not patient when doing this project

So there you have it. My FAIL for today-hopefully this week :)

Now-what to do with this canvas? Ideas anyone?
