Broken Bench Pallet Art

5:52:00 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!
