If you read my post last Thursday pallet love you will remember I left you hanging with my unfinished piece of pallet art (don't you love a good cliff hanger). I got busy over the weekend and here is what I came up with.
Working with these pallets was not as easy as I thought it would. Be prepared for some manual labor prying those dang wood pieces off!
It started like this...
I gave the piece a sanding with an electric sander and then painted it...
Wrote out my quote in pencil.
I used a small paintbrush to paint the words on. For the branches and birds I cut out shapes on my Cricut machine and then traced them in pencil.
I painted the birds on in layers one step at a time.
When I was finished I gave it another light sanding with the sander just because I wanted a more distressed look. I love the finished piece! My kids like that there is a bird to represent each person in our family!
Now I'm looking forward to getting my hands on some more pallets. I've still got all those idea's floating around in my head!
Have a fantastic Monday!
