I'm obsessed with the pallet art I made last fall, and ever since we found another pallet, I've been itching to make another one. Pinterest inspired me with things like this:
Zac made the pallet into a sign just like he did last time, and we went to work. I was planning to cut the letters from cardstock or contact paper, but my friend Clare caught me in time and cut them for me on her Cricuit. That saved me a ton of time. And made it look like this:
She cut the letters out on colored paper and we taped them to the pallet.
Our next step was to trace the letters with a pencil. Zac's more precise than I am, so he took care of this part.
Derby, meanwhile, was super helpful. But oh my goodness is he cute.
Tracing the letters turned into this...
which then turned into this.
We wanted a "rustic" look, so I used a paint brush to fill in the letters. I used a paint pen where I needed it, but for the most part I just used a brush.
Here's our finished product:
If we did it all over again, there are a few things I would do differently (like not use black paint), but overall, I'm happy with it.
Here it is in the overall room:
I really like the contrast between the silk curtains and the rustic art. What do you think? Fingers crossed that I'll show you the whole room over the next few days. We love it and I hope you will too!
