How to Make a Pallet Sawhorse Sign

How to make a rustic pallet sign.





Here is how I turned an old set of chippy, paint dripped, 3 legged sawhorses I found into an awesome piece of rustic Valentine art.

I cut off the legs, cut them to the same length, and screwed them all together.


I printed out the words I wanted to use on the computer and using carbon paper I traced each word onto the wood.


I outlined each word with a paint pen then hand painted the letters with black paint.


And so even though I didn't get a very cool set of saw horses.



 I did end up with a beautiful new chippy, painty sign!

  4. Susan you can't buy that wood, it's magical. Love your method - it's my all time go to (except I can never find the carbon paper so I just press hard with the pen) but the handpainting makes all the difference. Great work.
