I'm sure by now most of you have seen this amazing idea floating around on Pinterest but I thought I'd share it with you here, too, because you're just going to fall in love. Oh, which reminds me: Are you a member of Pinterest? WHAT? No? Goodness, get on it. Click here and I'd be more than tickled to send you an invite! And then follow me, pretty please.
Phew, now that a bit of light housekeeping is out of the way, lay your pretty eyes on this piece of gorgeous art, which you can purchase at Cozamia.
The original pinner, Jenny Crist, had the amazing idea to recreate something like this if you're feeling extra crafty: Paint the canvas with any colors you like then use painter's tape to create a herringbone pattern (or any other pattern you love) and make sure to leave some pieces out of the pattern. Then paint the entire canvas white. Let dry, peel off the tape, and jump for joy!
Wouldn't this idea be something fun to do for date night? Perhaps buy two smaller canvases and you and your hubby create two different masterpieces that you can hang in your home to enjoy for years to come. I asked Dave and he's on board. Eeeee, guess who wants to cancel their Valentine's dinner reservations and spend the night painting and drinking champagne instead?!!
Seriously, isn't this such a wonderful date night idea? No pretty outfit needed.
