I've been chopping up everything I can get my hands on since my exciting purchases. I'm making quick work of all the pallets in my garage and here is a sign I made for a friend's family who just bought a mountain house.
I printed out 2 vintagey looking prints, mod podged them onto each side, and then roughed them up to match the lettering.
I cut one pallet into 4 equal pieces and am making 4 signs.
I used my trusty carbon sheets (which are lasting forever by the way) to transfer my wording and the coordinates of Breckenridge.
I am loving the blue with the color of the wood.
I used regular old latex wall paint that is leftover from other projects and then finished the entire piece with one coat of poly urethane to protect it a bit and still keep it rustic.
Painting these signs is so soothing and peaceful to me. Probably, my favorite thing to do of all my crafty stuff. I just zone out and my mind wanders. By the time I finish I feel more relaxed than when I started. Guess that's why I keep making them:)
