Pallet Farmhouse Pantry Sign

This would have to be one of my most favorite Farmhouse projects yet. I’m seeing more and more of these sweet signs whilst out shopping and drool every time I see them! So to save myself from further drooling incidents I  thought I would try and make myself one. I had a nice spot right above my kitchen pantry that I thought a nice Pallet Farmhouse Pantry Sign would look perfect!

I found this old pallet on the side of the road for a DIY Pallet Challenge that I joined recently, where  a whole stack of awesome Bloggers had to make something out of a pallet. For that Challenge, I decided to make a DIY Pallet Rustic Bath Caddy and had lots of pallet wood left to play with. Whats a girl to do??!!

That’s right make a Pallet Farmhouse Pantry Sign!!

First step is to remove 1 of the wood pieces from the front of the pallet.

HANDY HIT: Use a wooden wedge or a crow bar and your hammer to leverage off the wood pieces.

Remove any nails and sand using your sanding block the entire piece of wood to prepare the surface for painting.

HANDY HINT: I always put the rusty nails that I don’t want into an old plastic bottle to discard as I would hate for someone to stand on one!!

Then using your paint brush give the entire piece 2 coats of milk coloured chalk paint, leaving to dry in between coats. Once dry sand back to give a nice distress look.

HANDY HINT: Don’t distress to heavily as you will go back after the lettering has been applied and sand again.

Then transfer the lettering onto the wood using your graphic paper and stylus.

HANDY HINT: Make sure you trace around all of the thicker lettering  as this makes it easier to block in with your round brush and stay in the lines.

Using your round brush and Americana Lamp Black Paint block in your lettering and allow to dry.

HANDY HINT: HANDY TIP: you want the paint to be a watery consistency but not to much otherwise it will bleed. Practice on a piece of scrap wood.

Once dry, using your sanding block  distress for desired effect and wax to seal.
