My latest love is pallet projects. It amazes me every time I search the Internet and find more projects using old wood or pallets. Why not use those old pieces of rundown wood for something new for the home or yard.
Tonight I worked on a new project that involves the addicting website Pinterest. I love love love Pinterest and I can spend hours, I mean hours on Pinterest searching random items. One of my finds on Pinterest was from an Etsy Store containing a Porch Rules Sign. I love this sign and who wouldn’t. It’s vintage, cute, black, and has a country charm design.
I decided to create my own version of this sign for my front porch. First, I had my husband dismantle an old pallet. After my husband was finished it remained on the front porch till I had a few minutes of spare time and a plan of attack on my new porch sign. Then sign has seven rows so I used seven boards. I lined all seven boards across my table and painted the planks with a watered down acrylic paint. I wanted the paint to be absorbed into the wood not just on top. While the wood was drying I cut out the letters for each board using my Cricut Machine. After the paint was dry I then arranged the letters just how I wanted them. Then I glued and sealed the letters using Decoupage. Then I lightly brushed over the letters again with watered down acrylic paint and wiped off as much of the paint as I could. I wanted the letters to look old not bright white like they was when I added them. I then attached two additional blanks behind the boards to hold them together. Finally my husband helped me hang the sign on the front porch. Love it!
