How to create pallet art
|Begin with an old pallet. I left mine outside for a month to "weather" it |
|Cut out a few boards from the pallet using a jigsaw|
|After arranging the boards use a nail gun to attach the boards to some scrap laminate flooring or whatever else you might have on hand (another board works well too). Trim the excess boards and backing using a jigsaw to give it a cleaner look|
|white paint and water created the "white wash" mixture|
|Apply white wash mixture with a dry rag, the more mixture you rub on the darker it will be. Let it dry|
|I found this free image from Graphics Fairy LLC . I printed the image and trimmed it|
|Using Mod Podge and a foam brush I wiped a generous amount onto the printed image|
|Lay the image flat onto the dried pallet boards (glue side down) and smooth out with your fingers. I let this dry for 24 hours|
|The next day I wiped the dry image with a damp cloth|
|Gently begin rubbing the damp paper off the boards|
|Be very careful not to rub the ink off the boards|
|Quickly realized that my piece was a tad to tall for the image so we removed the top 2 boards using a jigsaw. |
I think its just the right touch of whimsy!
and guess what!?
We are finally done a room!
