Summertime Pallet Sign

Here’s another fun pallet project from Kristi of I Should Be Mopping the Floor.  It’s a colorful sign with a fun vintage feel, perfect for proclaiming a love of summer.


To make this sign, Kristi cut boards off of a pallet and nailed them together to form a rustic looking plaque.  She painted over the wood with gray chalk paint and then roughed it up a bit so it would look like an old, weathered sign.  For the lettering, Kristi cut stencils using her craft cutting machine, then filled in the stencils with summery colors of craft paint.  The final touch was sanding over the painted letters so they would look weathered, too.  What a great piece of summer decor!

“Vintage” Pharmacy Sign from Old Wood

After having her kids and husband home for a week over Christmas break, Karin from Art is Beauty was itching to do a project.  It had to be a quick one while the rest of the crew was sledding, so she grabbed some old scrap wood and went to work.

After nailing the boards together, Karin used iron-on-transfer paper (clever!) to add a free graphic she had found that looked like an old, French pharmacy sign.  The overall effect is truly one that would make you think that Karin went antiquing while her kids and husband were sledding!  It looks amazing.
