Weathered Wood Ombre Sign

Over at The Happy Housie, Krista tells us, “I was out for a walk with my family the other day when I happened upon an old piece of pallet wood that had somehow ended up on the side of the road.  I had wanted to make a sign out of pallet wood for a while so I quickly grabbed it and ported it back home with me.”

Krista loved the look of the wood, and even though she planned to paint the sign, she wanted to make sure some of the wood tones had a chance to shine.  So, she did a reverse technique with this–leaving the lettering for the sign unpainted, so the wood could show, and then painting around it.  For contrast, she chose a yellow ombre effect.  Isn’t it lovely?
