How to Create Your Own Pallet Art | In This House…

Inspiration via Pinterest & Love of Family and Home
Seriously, where would the world be without it???
 

 and up close…
 

 
led to this…new creation
 
 
 
Tonya over at Love of Family & Home said, “I hope I’ve inspired you to make one of your own!”
 
Well, she did :)

I pretty much followed Tonya’s tutorial. My friend, Ashley, had pinned the pallet art to Pinterest, and I knew it would be the perfect give for her baby shower. My dad cut the slats from some craft wood found at Hobby Lobby. (We don’t own the proper equipment, so Dad to the rescue). Then I built the frame with some nails & wood glue. It’s 15 x 21, as I wanted it more of a rectangle.I painted it brown first, then cream. Using a block sander I removed some of the cream so the brown would show through. I used my new Silhouette to cut out the letters in the font The Blue Cabin. Then modged podged them on. One layer to stick & another over the top. Thanks to Love of Family & Home again for the beautiful inspiration. I need to make one or myself!

Took it outside for a little photo shoot.

Here is Ashley at the shower! I can’t wait to see it in the nursery :)

    Please share it with my girls over at my Sundae Shake Up link party! I'm sure they would love it, since my blog is a 1950's vintage theme!

    Thanks,
