I made this sign (actually a few) for some friends the other day... but because our birthday dinner/ girls night out was starting literally as the sealer was drying.. i didn't get very good pictures.
|Pallets are plentiful around here with all the new constructiton.. I'm always on the hunt!|
I started sawing away at it one night. I broke the saw.
Enter husband with a power saw...
I brushed it with a heavy duty bristle brush first to get the lose dirt off. Next i used rough sand paper and after that, a softer sanding block.
painted it white.
I used stencils and paint that i had already.. yay for last minute things that work out!
When it was dried, i destressed the edges with the soft sanding block. I also roughed up the letters, making it look worn.
Finally, I hot glued the rope to the back.
i hope my friend liked them.
love my navy wife friends!
love my Navy Life too.. most of the time :)
