Wood Pallet Art

Over the past few months, i have been drooling over the projects seen on Pinterest with wood pallets.  After searching Craigslist for pallets with no luck, I decided I would make my own!

The total cost for my project was just under $20.  I had my own stain, nails, paintbrushes, and a saw so all I bought was the wood.

 I bought two different sizes and alternated them.  I believe the width that I cut was around 32 inches.

 I used my lovely Purdy brush that I got from Goodwill last year for .99 cents!  I picked up 6 different kinds of Purdy brushes for .99 cents each!  :)

The stain was Miniwax Dark Walnut and I applied two coats to make it darker.

And once that was dry, I used a stencil from Michael's and stenciled my favorite bible verse on it!

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.

*Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.*

I love it and can't wait to enjoy it for many years in our home.  It's also a great reminder for me throughout the day.
