I have been seeing all of the fantastic things that people do with wood pallets for a while now. I don’t have enough room to use a whole pallet, but I thought that a pallet sign would be nice.
As luck would have it, while Marley and I were on our morning walk, I came across a few pieces of wood, from a pallet, in a trash pile.
It was not far from my house, so I picked the best one and carried it home.
I knew exactly what I was going to do with it!
I fully intended to sand the wood down and paint it before I added the wording. But, after sanding it, I loved the textured look of the wood so much that I decided to just add the lettering and then poly the whole thing.
Take a look!
This signs fits perfectly!

Here is my completed photo strip wall art!
This is what I did:
I used an iPad app called Photo Booth to make the photo strip and then just emailed it to myself.
From my email, I put the photo strip picture on a memory stick and took it to Staples to get an engineer print. I knew that I wanted my photo strip wall art to be 4 feet tall, so I had to order the 36 x 48 print. It was supposed to be $7.29 and I was OK with that, but, because it did not fill up the whole sheet, the girl only charged me $2.00. (Awesome!)
I got a piece of thin MDF, used for shelving at Home Depot and had them cut it to the size I needed. (Tip: get your print before you go and have your wood cut so that you can get exact measurements.)
I trimmed some of the white sides but left enough to wrap around my board to make a nice clean edge. I painted the top and bottom edges of the board white and then spray it with some all purpose spray adhesive. I carefully rolled my print onto the tacky board, smoothing out any air bubbles as I went.
I added a saw tooth hanger to the back and it was finished.
This turned out better than I expected and all for under $10.00!
