Beautiful French Pallet Art

 Good Morning My BEAUTIES! 
I am sooooo Jonesing for spring I can hardly stand it anymore...
I have so many pieces of FURNITURE I want to paint..but as usual this Michigan winter has been 
Relentless; and even with my furnace in the garage I would not be able to get a good 
dry time for the furniture. So Instead, I have been working on some smaller pieces..
Well one day last week I decided I wanted to work on making some signs for my booth.

Well Working on signs, meant I had to trek on out to the shed, for my wood pile.
YEAH...THIS is what I looked like when I came back in...Some spots were waist high....
But I was determined to get some work done..(oh I forgot to mention..I needed one more extra piece and had to go back in it again about 5 minutes later...:)) LUCKY ME...:) 

Once I had come in and Changed my pants...:)  I started arranging my wood pallet boards. (I had to quick take them outside to the miter saw to get them equal lengths) I used 2 firing stips to attach the boards all together.

Once that was done, I started with a light wash of paint. I had some leftover custom paint from another project and used up just a tiny bit to give it this old worn finish that would be perfect.
Now you remember I just did a dresser that I fell so in love with that I ended up keeping for myself HERE...and I loved the graphic so much that I decided it would be perfect for some pallet art.
So I grabbed my MORE THAN WORDS stencil made from a GRAPHICS FAIRY graphic.
I started laying down my paint and couldn't be happier with the chic yet rustic way it turned out.
When all the paint was dry, I waxed and buffed the whole thing. I tell you what; If I hadn't kept the dresser...I WOULD have KEPT this sign!! I don't know what it is about the colors and the graphic that just pull me in EVERY TIME!
And since I love you guys so much, I am giving you a chance to win a $50 credit to "MORE THAN WORDS" etsy shop. It ends on Tuesday so be sure to hurry over and Enter.
Well my Beauties...I hope you enjoyed this latest little project.
And go on to have a BEAUTIFUL week. 
We are suppose to be in the single digits again as a high....(BANGING HEAD ON WALL)
So I might be making LOTS AND LOTS more signs...
Until next time..
Have a BEAUTIFUL day....

that it would work out THIS perfect..

You may also remember that she made the stencil for my

stencil for me.

Vintage Tea Label Cupboard Art and Maison de Stencils GIVEAWAY!

Hello my BEAUTIES!  Guess what I have for you guys today?
A giveaway from MAISON DE STENCILS.
But First I will show you what I have done with mine.

If you remember a girlfriend of mine gave me a ton of free Cupboard doors.
I love to use them for art work and when I got this Vintage Tea Label
from Maison de Stencils it felt like the perfect fit.

So laid out my stencil and picked out my paint colors.

I wanted it to pop on the dark background so I picked my faves blue green and white for the stencil.
Once it was dry I distressed the whole thing and sealed it with poly.
and just like that I took a Free Door and turned it into a piece of artwork.
Now for the GIVEAWAY.!
Just jump on down to RAFFLECOPTER AND follow the directions.

one lucky winner  will get to choose a 12x12 stencil  and another winner a 5.5x11.5 Stencil.
Forgive me if it is a little wonkie..:) I have never used Rafflecopter before but wanted to try it since
it makes it so much easier for you guys to enter.
Best of Luck to all of you.
I will be picking the winner on June 1st. So be sure to check back.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day.
