Since I had pallet boards left over from other projects, I decided to let nothing go to waste and made wall decor for our office.
First I cut the boards so they would be about the same length. Then to connect all the boards, I screwed a board lengthwise to the back.
I wanted the wood to show through so I whitewashed the boards. To do this, dilute ivory paint with water until you are satisfied with the consistency (I had an extra piece of wood to practice on). Then brush on a few coats to get your desired coverage.
For the lettering I made stencils by printing the letters I needed on cardstock and carefully cutting them out.
Now all I had to do was trace the letters on the boards and fill in with gray and red paint.
Then I brushed on a little more whitewash to distress the lettering a little.
