Hi there everyone!
Who doesn’t love a free project?
Today I am sharing how to make a patriotic pallet.
Remember the other day I shared with the some patriotic pallet inspiration?
First I would like to say
Welcome to our Fun in the Sun Summer blog hop and linky party coming up tomorrow.
We also have a MEGA giveaway of $250.00 cash for you so you want to be sure to come back and enter.
meet the gals:
Oops on me, at one point I stopped photographing and will just have to verbally explain.
This was as simple as a dump cake!
I scored the pallet free of charge from Lowes Home Improvement.
I have actually scored a lot of free pallets from them.
My Fall pallet with chicken wire and burlap
and my very first kitchen pallet shelf.
I know some of you are going to think, hmmm..she said she doesn’t care for Krylon spray paint anymore?
This is true, I am a Rustoleum lover now.
However, I had this can on hand and I hate to waste anything. Besides, I was not too concerned about getting this project perfect.
It’s a pallet for pete sakes, it should look rustic anyhow.
And this is where the photographing discontinued…
First I spray painted the pallet with banner red Krylon.
The white stripes I simply used trim paint I had on hand.
For the stars I used a stencil I had purchased at walmart. I bought a pack of letter stencils and it happen to come with some stars and hearts.
The blue portion is Americana decor chalkypaint.
I would say we are ready to celebrate the 4th back here now.
The wreath I have had for years..I actually think that came from K-mart. How I miss the K-mart being close by now.
This project took about an hour or so of time…and as I mentioned free.
Next time you are strolling around in your home improvement store, keep your eyes open for one yourself.
Just be sure to ask the cashier if it is OK..I would hate for you to be stealing a pallet at Lowes, and then you saying
but, but, Debbie doo’s said I could, as you are being hand cuffed away! JK
Thanks for stopping over today.
