1. Lay 4-2×4′s (approx. 14″ long each) flat on the ground.
2. Grab 2 extra scrap pieces of wood (just long enough to nail onto,) a hammer and a handful (10-12) of nails.
3. Hammer away until the newly created pallet is sturdy. Easy peasy!
Now to paint:
1. Acrylic paints & foam brush. 2. Brown base coat. 3. Gray top coat. 4. Cut vinyl lettering out, (I designed mine with our vinyl cutter,) and place on pallet where desired. 5. Lightly brush on paint, (I used 3 colors: state- white, heart- pink and quote- robin egg blue.) 6. Lightly sand if you like the shabby look… I personally love how the brown base coat pulled through!
And that’s it:
I know our Valentine decor is more of a year-round display BUT, I recently moved 3 hours away from my entire family and this is a good reminder for me to see each day in my home that my heart is where I currently am… with my sweet husband and adorable chubby toddler
