Kitchen Love Subway Art Sign

Our walls are looking pretty sad these days so when we took down the slap-dash DVD shelves to paint the nursery I saved the boards to make something pretty. The kitchen was first on the list and with Valentine’s Day coming up fast this seemed like the perfect time to make some food related subway art.
