NAUTY Pallet art! Nautical Anchor art...get your minds out of the gutter......:)

Good Morning my BEAUTIES!
Man does that feel good to say again!
I have been a busy little beaver getting lots of little projects done
and trying to stock pile some finished furniture since
its down time for shopping at the booth.
I decided with the spring season and hopefully "fingers crossed" 
summer like weather soon, that I should start working on some
fun COTTAGE art.
(not that I have a cottage, but for those that do..and love to shop...I love to make this kind of stuff for them) 
I decided to make some NAUTY pallet art....You know.......?? NAUTICAL...:)

 I put my boards together like I always do..You can see the post HERE on
how I assemble them.
I used CeCe Caldwells Smokey mountain and vintage white to give the boards a wash of color.
I then used my silhouette program to trace and cut a simple anchor shape.

 Once I had used my transfer tape to transfer my vinyl stencil to my boards I used CeCe Caldwells
Coral paint to paint on my anchor. I love the contrast of the bright Coral color against
the faded blue and white boards.
When it was all dry I waxed and buffed the boards.

 I love the simple fun of this piece.
I am not normally a nautical person
but after being in Florida for spring break
I just felt the need to do something
like this!
I hope you enjoyed this.
I can't wait for next week when I will show you some of the furniture
I have been working on.
Until then..
Go make someones day BEAUTIFUL!!!
