Isn't Melinda's chevron sign adorable? Love it. When I was given the assignment to make something chevron I went to good old Pinterest to see if there was anything on my project "to-do" list that I could interpret with a chevron twist. I been wanting to make a love sign like this for above my bed, and with Valentines just around the corner it seemed perfect!

Here is how mine turned out with its chevron spin...
And I "love" it! hehe
The Chevron pattern is fairly subtle (but not so much as the pictures make it out to be.) But it really adds a fun texture to the peice and is a great addition to my bedroom.
(Sorry for the funky lighting. The morning sun was shinning in.)
Here is a better representation of the color and pattern.
It was really simple to make.
I just got a big old peice of wood and drew on my word.
Cut it out with a jig saw. Broke the "L" in half on my last cut and had to glue it back together. Sigh...
About gave my husband a heart attack because it is so busy it makes you go cross-eyed. Assured him I wasn't done and to trust me.
Then covered the whole thing with dark brown stain.
I think I'm going to actually put a high gloss finish coat on it, but until I get around to it I'm happy.
Thanks for reading!
