19) Love at Home Pallet Art
This is a pallet art sign that was made of only four pallets. This Love at Home sign is very rustic and classy. The pallets used in this design were recycled and were stained to perfection. A deep stain was used to give pallets this rosy glow. And after the pallets were dry, stenciled letters were added.
If you want to use a wood stain on your projects you need to choose the right stain to get the best effect. Most use a very dark stain which may look classy but has absolutely covered the natural appearance of wood. The best technique would be to apply wood stain twice to get the best effects.
Using varnish is also one way to improve natural wood color but be careful though because varnish could make wood very shiny and have an unnatural appearance.
20) Friends Become Family Wood Sign
This sign will truly warm your heart! This was made from a few pieces of pallet wood which were attached with a brace at the back and hung on a wall. The pallets were stained using a very deep stain color which makes the letters of this saying stand out.
This pallet wood sign is very simple but has a lot of potentials. First of all, this wood sign can be made larger so you can paint longer and more intricately designed words and sentences. You can also paint this sign instead of staining it to make the letters stand out. And you can also hang this anywhere but the best spot has to be your living room where friends and family come together.
