On a recent shopping trip I was fascinated by all the feather wall decor I saw in the shops. Later I was scrolling through the Walnut Hollow online shop and saw these wooden feathers and rustic pallet and I knew that’s what I wanted to use in my first monthly project for Walnut Hollow.
Supply List for Feather Sign Wall Decor
- Rustic Pallet, 14″ x 24″
- 2 Rustic Feathers
- Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint, Primitive
- dark walnut stain
- paint brushes
- hammer & finish nails
- removable poster putty (optional)
This was a large project but went really quick. All it took was one coat of the chalky finish paint. I worked it into the rough texture of the rustic feather with a paint brush.
I applied a coat of watered down dark walnut stain to the rustic pallet then wiped it off with a rag.
Now for my little secret… I wasn’t sure if I wanted to use one or two feathers on this sign so I stuck them on with removable poster putty and hung it on the wall to see how I liked it. I didn’t want to nail the feathers on until I was sure how I wanted to place them. After it had hung up for a couple of days I decided I liked it. So I thought I’d just leave it with the putty to see how long it would last. That was 3 weeks ago and it’s still hanging there!
The feathers are very light and it just took two finish nails in each one to hold them on.
Here’s the finished project hanging in my guest bedroom.
