Beachy Summer Handmade Signs made from free Pallet wood.

(hitting REPLAY today in the hopes that these posts will INSPIRE mother nature
to give us some warm weather.) :)

Good Morning my Beauties.
I hope this morning finds you well.
I have been a happy gal.
It was finally nice enough for me to be outside
and dismantle some pallets......
and you know what that means!

I cut up a bunch of boards and just used 2 boards behind to hold them together and screwed the
2 supports to the boards.
Then I slapped on some paint..

Now the fun part of deciding what to paint.
While our weather has been less than pleasant
I am JONESING for some beach time.
So I thought I would kick out some fun beach themed pallet art.

First my boat. I used chalk to draw it on the sign and just started painting.

Next the "Crab Shack"
I used my silhouette for this one.
I cut out a crab shape and then the words CRAB SHACK
and used it as a stencil.

The last sign I HAND PAINTED free hand...
Just to give it that authentic look, like it was made by
some lucky sun of a gun who lives at the beach..:)
I painted them all up and used JUTE tied to the back for hanging.

I still can't decide which one is my favorite.
They are suppose to go to my booth but I don't know..I may
have to make a couple for myself.

The best part...I had everything on hand,
so it cost me NADA, ZERO, ZILTCH...
I love it when a plan comes together!

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial
and hope YOU are getting some BEACHY Weather.
I think we are not going to get ours till Autumn.  :)
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!
