FREE Trash to treasure Pallet Art


I had fun with this project...Anytime I have something FREE
and  I get to use a power tool; I have fun.

See this "crap ton" (as hubby so lovingly calls it)
of wood...Got it for free out of my neighbors garage.
They were happy to have me take it away..in fact I ended up going back TWICE because
they wanted me to take more...OK...:)

I had a pallet on the side of my garage for a while but neither my hubby or I could
dismantle that thing because of the RING shank nails...every time we would try the wood would
split and break. So I thought this would be perfect instead for my pallet art.
I cut the pieces to length and then two boards on the back to hold it together.

TADA!!

Then I stained it. I did it in an slap dash way as to look AGED

Then I went on over to the GRAPHICS FAIRY and got myself her 2 bicycle graphics.
Can you guess how I put them on...????
YOU'RE right....FREEZER PAPER!!!
You can see that tutorial HERE

and there you have it....From Trash to treasure...FREE Artwork.
I can't wait until tomorrow...Wait till you see what I did with the rest of that wood.
I will be guest posting over at REDOUX
on a great project where I show you up close and personal another tutorial on Freezer paper transfer.
I hope you enjoyed and I hope you have a BEAUTIFUL day!
