First, remove most of the deck boards from the back of a lightweight pallet, leaving the stringers intact and the upper deck boards in place. Next, sand the pallet as little - or as much as you like.
How do I make this Pallet Lover's Heart Wall Art? You've got lots of options! Here are a few ideas for you...
- Stain the wood a medium to dark tone and let it dry. Finally, paint over everything around the pattern and lightly sand to give it a distressed look.
- Paint the entire pallet with a white or whitewash stain. Sand the pattern out, leaving bits of white remaining for a more distressed look.
- Petroleum jelly can be lightly applied to the edges or even the main pattern area to prevent paint from sticking. You can wipe it off when the paint/stain is dry.
- Skip the stains and do two paint tones!
- Sand the whole pallet, and then carefully mask and lightly stain just your pattern to have a more natural tone.
Great idea! Could be customized an unlimited amount of ways! Now, how about a place to mount a TV when you want to kick back and enjoy your hard work?
