Valentine Subway Art Board

I fell in love with this HUGE subway art board that the super cute and crazy-talented gal at Tatertots and Jello did.  A couple of my buddies liked it too, and so we decided to make it!  It was SO much work, and pretty expensive because of the molding mostly, but I love the finished product.  I am also anti-pink, so we changed that color to red and reversed the black and silver paints.   The vinyl was a pain in the rear too, because it is a 6 foot board, and that is REALLY hard to get the vinyl to go on straight and not go crooked on ya.  It was so beautiful though, when it came time to pick off the background pattern's vinyl after painting the silver on, I had a friend and 2 sweet little ones helping me with my board and it still took over an hour just to get all those hundreds of little pieces picked off.  I felt insane for awhile.  It was definitely an intensive project, but a labor of LOVE.....hardy har har!  :)

    I love how cute yours looks! And I like the red/black combo better than the grey/pink. So cute!
