Now that we have stopped moving around the country, and have settled into a house (finally) I am really enjoying being able to do some of the stuff I want, and pull out those supplies that have been packed up and moved from house to house! Once that has dried (and sanded if necessary) You are going to dry brush on a thin coat of white acrylic paint. Now you are going to just brush this along the wood, re dip in the paint as necessary, but don’t get carried away because you want your brush to remain dry, so get every bit of paint off you can before you get more on there. Now clean off any dust residue on your wood, and you are going to apply a coat of the DIY Wood Stain that we just made with the same grade steel wool you used to make your stain! Now you can seal it with your favorite Polyacrylic and finish up any final steps you might have! And if you are looking for some new painting techniques, you can check out my tutorial on getting a Farmhouse Style Finish here. Great tutorial Ashley – so glad I found it over at the Fabulously Creative Friday Party! Prepare a garden bed by rototilling, aerating, and working compost into the soil just as you would any garden, but in dimensions to accommodate the wood pallet. Dig a rough outline of approximately half the depth size of the outside frame of the pallet (approximately 4 inches) and place the wood pallet in the area.
Plant seeds, seedlings or starter plants in the rows that are created by the openings in the wood pallets.
Label the rows by marking on the pallet with a permanent marker or a wooden handmade stake.
Water and care for your wood pallet garden just as you would any other garden a€” minus much of the weedingA a€” and enjoy a compact, efficient little vegetable patch with much less work.
When ita€™s time to rotate your garden at the end of the growing season, just lift the pallet from the ground and store away or move to next yeara€™s location. Some scrap pieces of wood, a stencil, and acrylic paint in plain and metallic colours are all that you need to create this stunning wall art.
I had an incredibly lucky moment a few months ago, when some friends asked me to make a few signs for their house. I lined up the boards and enlisted a few cute handymen to secure them to one another on the back with metal braces. When this was dry I centred the stencil, and started in on my lightest colour, a creamy white. Join us on Instagram and Pinterest to keep up to date with what we are doing and being inspired by!


So go ahead and make that, because it needs to sit for at least 24 hours before you can use it!
For this tutorial I am using regular ole wood shims, so depending on the type of wood you will be working with, the overall look might vary. If you aren’t familiar with dry brushing first put some paint on a paper plate and spread it out kinda thin, then take a dry brush (I like to use the cheap ones from Wal Mart for this) and just get a tiny bit of paint on the end of the bristles.
Let fully dry before you apply another coat, because the color does change quite a bit once dry. She and her husband recently settled in the Midwest after spending the beginning of their marriage in Texas (what a change!).
I’m so ready to give it a try on something bigger : ) Thanks for stopping by and pinning!
If this is something you want to experiment with, they’re the easiest raised garden bed everA  and an eco-friendly, time-saving approach to growing flowers or vegetables at home. When you locate wood pallets, make sure to choose ones that are in good, sturdy condition and have not been treated with pesticides.
She is also a certified Maine Master Gardener who writes gardening articles on a regular basis for Yankee Magazine.
Please be sure to warn people that pressure treated wood contains chromated copper arsenate (known as CCA) which is highly toxic. Jamielyn aspires to reach women, get their creative juices flowing, and to genuinely inspire. I was thinking of making something like this for over my daughter's bed, kind of like a canopy.
They wanted to pull apart a beautiful old chest that was in their home and use that wood for the project, and offered me the rest of the wood to use as I wished. I lightly sprayed the stencil with a tacky stencil adhesive, and placed it a bit off-centre on top of the wood. I love working with wood and that is just something you don’t get to do a whole lot of while moving around. When you are happy with how it looks, give it a light sanding with a dry piece of the steel wool you applied the stain with. Together they are raising their children, and turning their house into a home one project at a time. I have one question…in the picture where you show how you distressed it with a hammer, how did you get those uniform lines along the bottom of the board???


It is possible that these chemicals can seep into soil and taken up by food plants (vegetables) during watering and rain. When she’s not creating, Jamielyn loves to chase her two little monkeys and snuggle up on the couch with her man.
So today I’m going to share with you how to weather wood for when you want new wood to look old! I just want you to be aware of that before you get started, so you might want to test it somewhere if you have a specific look in mind, ok? Ashley enjoys decorating and crafting, but her true passion lies in redoing old furniture and making things look old. I love barnwood that has that look but have never been able to distress it that way myself.
The instant rows created by the pallet slats give weeds no place to grow between rows and are the perfect place to write plant names.
It is also highly toxic to fish and should be kept away from water with fish (fish ponds) etc.
Once that was dry we sanded it down one last time and then I added one more coat of paint to seal the deal. I let the bronze paint dry, repositioned the stencil, and painted a shimmery gold colour on the corners of the board, overlapping a bit of the bronze branches.
One of my favourite things about this piece is how different it looks depending on where you're standing in the room. Wood pallet garden frames require no assembly, are readily available and are also usually free. After doing a little googling, I decided to make one of my own, that way it would be unique.
So first you are going to stain your wood with the Minwax Dark Walnut using your lint free cloth (or brush) and let this dry. If you are finishing a piece of furniture you might want to give it a light sanding when you are done.
I didn’t do this since I was just working with wood shims, but you should sand between coats if you are looking for a nice finish!
