Happy July! Our summer has been a crazy one, as I’m sure yours has been too! We’ve been to Cali for our oldest’s lacrosse tournament then to Utah to spend the 4th with our in-laws. We’ve had a stack of cute wood hearts in our craft stash, leftover from a recent boutique where we met a cute local who has been making these for several years out of pallets. She sold them to me wholesale with big dreams to create a new line for our shop but alas, summer hit and in my craft room they’ve sat. When DecoArt introduced their premium paint line, we knew we wanted to play with it right away. We decided this little heart was the perfect ginuea pig.
Look at all the pretty colors! We chose Titanium White, Warm Gray and Primary Magenta to deter from our usual aqua, coral and mustard obsession.
Gather your supplies, you’ll just need a pallet heart and home cutout. Then head to Michael’s to grab a stencil and paint colors of your choice.
Super excited that our Mason Jar Key Holder is featured on the packaging, that was a fun surprise when we were hanging out in the Michael’s paint aisle 😉
We only used one coat to cover this old pallet art! Very impressive!
Then we used a sponge dabber brush to paint the gray over the white.
We decided on a pattern of stencil, solid, solid, whitewash, stencil, solid to break it up. There’s no wrong way, get creative!
We gave it a quick sand to create a worn look.
We painted the home in the magenta color to give it a fun pop!
Then we hot glued it on, easy!
It feels right at home on our entryway shelves.
Pssst: We sell our home cutout on a sign too.
plus these fun colorful chairs!
