DIY Hardware LOVE Sign
This project started out with a drawer front from a kitchen cabinet and a bunch of old hardware.
I gathered the supplies I needed to create this rustic Valentine's Day sign...
- Random pieces of old hardware,
- shiplap decorated scrap book paper,
- and a drawer front from a recent haul of repurposed cabinet doors.
I began by looking through my workshop stash for items I could use as letters to spell out LOVE.
Once I found the hardware I needed I cut a piece of shiplap scrapbook paper to fit inside the recessed section of my cabinet drawer front.
I arranged the hardware letters on the board and attached them with hot glue. If you don't own a cordless glue gun yet, you need one! You can literally work from anywhere without having to worry about a cord!
For the "L" I used two metal backings for furniture knobs. I painted them with a brushed steel color from Fusion Mineral Paint to give them the color I wanted for this sign.The "O" was a metal piece I had painted with chalk paint at one time and added a vintage typewriter key to the center.
For the "V" I found 2 double marine hooks that I attached at one end and glued to the drawer front.
The "E" was a no brainer... The vintage drawer handle with a knob in the center made the perfect letter E. I just love the chippy finish on this piece.
