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!
