My little toddler loves horses. Her room is brown and purple. I decided to get this for her and since it didn't match her room, I repainted the sign. I used sample colors from her burlap sign project and while my son did homework, I painted away. The sign was black with a red heart.
I applied the first coat and then a second coat since we were painting over such a dark sign. I then repainted the heart in a different shade of purple. I opted to keep the little horses underneath so I just painted around them.
I put it under an old chandelier that I had when I was in college. I hung it the same day so I have yet to hide the chord. On my to do list. (It keeps getting larger!)
