I have seen a few pallet signs around blogland lately, and really liked the rusticness of the idea. So, I asked my husband if he would cut a few pallets for me. Since he works a lot of hours, he never really got around to it. And then... inspiration struck!
Remember this chair?
Well... This next picture was Take One, which didn't pan out. But... we kept the pallet seat we made for it! By this point, you probably know what I am getting at, don't you! :-)
So the other night I went in search of this seat and traced a bible verse on it. Then, I painstakingly filled in each letter with cream craft paint. This part took a lot longer than I was expecting!
(As you can see, at this point, it was still in the shape of a chair seat!)
And a close up to prove there's actually writing on there! I ended up having to use a white pencil crayon... a regular pencil didn't show up.
Et Voila! Le produit fini!
(The next day, my husband trimmed it into a rectangle for me, so it would sit straight.)
