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. I used the fonts “Cursif” for “home and hearts” and Champagne & Limousines for the other. 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.
Hey, I’d love to see these pics, but they are not showing up???
All fixed, Vanessa 🙂
LOVE this. I’m definitely planning on recreating this with California. 🙂
Any chance you can provide the fonts you used for the lettering?? I love it!
Thanks Miranda! We used “Cursif” font for the script and “Champagne & Limousines” for the other. 😉
Adorable! I’m an AZ girl too, I absolutely love this. Where/how did you get your AZ template??
Hey Cassie! Go Arizonans! 😉
I used the font “Scrappy States” for the state of AZ and added a heart image on top of it. Turned out cute!
I like what you guys are up too. Such clever work and coverage!
Keep up the very good works guys I’ve added you guys to blogroll.
This is so fun! I would love to feature this on Reduce, Reuse, Upcycle. Feel free to stop by and grab a featured button.
This is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Love it! Pretty please link this up at my turquoise lovin' party! http://www.sweetlittlegals.com/2012/02/turquoise-lovin-24.html
I found you from Positively Splendid's party. I l.o.v.e this project! We moved from Missouri last year and miss it dearly. This would be a great thing in our home to remind us of our home there!

Had to stop in for another look! Thanks so much for linking up to the challenge! Karah
What a cute idea. Looks great.
such a cute idea!
What a cute idea! I've got it pinned for future use.
That is adorable. We'll have to have a "state off" when I post my CA project (it is different but state related). Anyway – super cute (and I love that EAT sign too)
So cute! I love what you have decided to do with vinyl lettering!! I can't wait to see how crafty I can be with it. I think I might put it on the windows of my car…what do you think? Good? Tacky? Bad?
So pretty! Great job!
I am in love with this! (And a little sad that I live in a boring square state!)
Hey Ladies! Too funny. You are the very first link party I attended (and totally messed up the link …) and now here you are at my "impossibilities" link party!
