Pallet Wood Love Sign

DIY Pallet Wood Love Sign

 

 

I hope you have all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! We have been so lucky to spend our time with friends and family, swimming, playing yard games, having bonfires, and watching fireworks. It has been the perfect summer weekend!

We spent a lot of time in our backyard this weekend and it was the first time that many of our friends and family were able to see our new exterior gallery wall. Of course that reminded me that I have yet to share the centerpiece with all of you.

I saw this canvas screen print at Hobby Lobby one day. I loved the design on it but I am really not one to embrace a mass-produced screen printed sign. Not to mention I don't usually spend money on something I think I can make myself.

So I headed out to the pallet wood pile and started selecting pieces. I decided it would be best if the pieces all had a slightly different tone or finish so I chose accordingly and laid them out until I liked the size.

The pieces came out to a height of 28" so I cut them to the same width.

Some of them were really dirty so I sanded everything down just enough to clean them up.

Then I used two more pieces of pallet wood, cut to 27", to hold it all together.

They were not the same width but that didn't matter. I just needed to them be the same depth so that it could sit flat on the wall.

I screwed through the back to attach each board, making sure to use screws in any places that were cracked or breaking so that those would not fall out later.

Once it was all held together I painted the sign, using the same carbon paper method I always use. You can get the full description of that process here.

When it was all completed I used a clear coat to really bring out the color in the pallet wood.

The left over nails and such really add to the overall look of the sign.
