All You Need Is Love...
A simple pallet project with paint, metal hearts and contact paper.
First I cut the top of a pallet off in one complete piece. I added two pieces of furring strip to the top and bottom halves to fill in a little space.
I wanted to do a simple sign, not necessarily just for Valentine's, but one that can be displayed all year.
The pallet was just painted white. The letters I did from stencil and hand painted.I outlined the letters with a paint pen for more detail. The pallet board that showed in between I just left as-is.
For the top and bottom I applied contact paper that I found at the dollar store. It was a black and white floral print, that's why I chose to add some black lettering.
The contact paper worked pretty well. It stated on the directions not to apply to rough surfaces- Ha Ha- with a little sanding the pallet surface was pretty smooth. I overlapped the paper on the back so it basically sticks to itself.
The finishing touch was just to apply a few silver metal hearts left over from previous projects.
This turned out to be a pretty big sign but it displays a lot of love.
For now it is propped on my piano/mantle and it reminds me everyday of the simple things and makes me smile.
Hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend!
