DIY Pallet Signs

 
This one is pretty easy.  We just took a pallet and cut all the boards up into little sections. 
Then sand them down.  We used 60 grit followed by 220 grit.  


Then, once sanded down.  Either paint or stain them to your liking.
Now, if you have stencils you can use those or you can use Microsoft Word (or similar program.)
We used word.  We typed in what we wanted on the board.  Made it the size and then the style of font we wanted.  Before you print it off, check your printer settings and see if you can print a mirror image.  Once its printed (should be a mirror image of what's on the computer).  Lay it across the board where you want the words to be.  Take a  paint brush just damp with water and go over where the ink is.  Then use the end of the paint brush and press firmly (not to hard though) to transfer the ink from the paper to the board.  We were then able to paint over the the letters.  The bottom and top pictures are just a couple signs that we have done so far.
