This Pallet Wood Mantle Piece took me an afternoon of painting, sanding, then staining. I used various types of paints and stains. My favorite was dark walnut. It is about 48"x60". I got this idea from a local store that sells wall art.
This Pallet Wood Mantle Piece adds warmth to a plain mantle, and saves you money, too!
This simple idea can be accomplished in a single day. Just choose your favorite pallet boards of varying lengths to begin. Next, sand them the way you want, and begin staining or painting. Don't forget the fun of adding a "distressed" look, too! Finally, secure them from the back with more pallet boards and hang them up. This art piece will surely bring a lot of attention and comments from your friends!
