Another Pallet Wood Project

My Horoscope says “No new projects”, but finishing projects is highly recommended.

Well, my horoscope doesn’t know me then, cuz this chick is gonna craft in the holidays!!!

So I had a friend tag me a reminder of something she wanted for christmas last year and didn’t get and since I seem to have lots of free time on my hands this month, I decided to use up some of the stuff I have laying around and do the crafts that I love to do.  Creativity B-A-B-Y!

So I pulled out some of my pallet wood that I had torn apart a few weeks ago, and laid it out.  I then stained/painted some boards to give it some pizzaz.

I love, love, love how the wood took the paint/stain – it muted it nicely. Especially with the lettering done in white paint. It’s a big phrase so I feel it needed the color behind it – to pop out.

When cutting the stencils for something this big, you have to do it in pieces and because I’m cheap and want to use as much of the template material as possible so sometimes it’s not a straight forward process of just cutting the stencil, laying in on and painting. So the design doesn’t always come out exactly as you are expecting it to. But hey, I think it turned out great.

It’s a bit choppy on the letters, not crisp, but that’s because of the course texture of the wood. I had even sanded it down after staining, but pallet wood is not known to be a real high quality of wood, now is it.
