BLESSED Farmhouse Style Wood Pallet Sign

Farmhouse style signs seem to be everywhere lately.  So I figured it was about time for me to make one for my dining area.  I had an empty space right above the window just the right size for this rustic pallet from Walnut Hollow.

This sign is special.  It’s a perfect reminder for our fall/Thanksgiving season about how blessed we are.  Then as soon as Thanksgiving is over it can be turned over to the other side for the Christmas season.

Supply Needed for Industrial Farmhouse Style Sign

Step One:  Stain the rustic pallet with walnut stain.

Step Two:  Paint the letters in metallic silver.

You can see in the photo below that this could be a stopping point.  But if you like a more distressed look, keep going!

Step Three:  Pounce a tiny bit of black paint around the edges of the letters with a stencil brush.

Step Four:  Pounce on the gray paint, overlapping black in areas.

Step Five:  Lay all letters out next to each other.  If any are too dark, pounce some of the metallic silver over the dark areas.

Step Six:  Sprinkle some cinnamon onto your hand and rub it into the edges of the letters for a rusty effect.

Step Seven:  Nail the letters onto the board.  BLESSED on the front and JOY on the back.
