Broken Bench Pallet Art5:52:00 PM
My art projects started out with this old broken bench
a friend dropped off at my house...
Thank you Patty for dropping off the bench... truthfully I would have loved to see it strapped to the roof of your little car!
Did you notice that this bench has no seat?...
that is because I used the bench slats for my projects.
The bench was truthfully beyond repair so I unscrewed the
slats then cut them into 18" lengths. I strapped 4 or 5 of the slats together for each project with 2 cross pieces on the back.
I used a dry brush technique on each pallet to give
them a weathered look.
On one I printed out words from my computer
then traced them onto the pallet.
On the other pallet board I sketched out a seahorse...
The results are 2 beautiful pieces of pallet art from
the slats of a bench that may have ended up in the land fill.
Stay tuned... I'm pulling apart the back of the bench next!
