Made By Me MONDAY!
I have been SOOOO excited to make this one! I found this on pinterest a couple of weeks ago and just KNEW that I had to make one for myself! I absolutely love it! Although we didn't actually make this sign out of pallets, that would work perfect too. We bought cheap wood fence slats at Home Depot. We bought six of them for $10... can't beat that! (this is my husband's hairy arm, not mine! LOL)
We cut them each at 35" long. I wanted this thing B.I.G. The final sign ended up being 35" long by 33" tall.
then we cut two extra pieces to brace the pieces and hold the whole thing together. We laid the whole thing out before we started nailing.
We used these AWESOME nails that have little ridges on them, so they are sure to hold.
Then we started nailing this puppy together! :)
It went super fast and was way easy to put it together!
I cut my vinyl lettering and weeded it the opposite way than normal, taking out the letters and leaving the sheet.
It doesn't look pretty at this point, but it WILL!! The vinyl acts as a stencil, so it doesn't matter what color vinyl you use because it's going to come off anyway.
Just make sure that there are NO open edges on the board, and then spray paint away!
After your paint has dried, carefully take off the vinyl sheet exposing your wording. It's like Christmas!
This collage will show that's as
easy as 1,2,3
Next, I wanted to give it a sanded look so I lightly sanded over the entire project. You can see that the word "love" hasn't been sanded yet. BIG difference...
I LOVE the distressed look... so then I added some stain too!
I really do LOVE the way it turned out!
