Today's the day that the ladies over at Bower Power and Young House Love are revealing their projects for their Pinterest Challenge! Have you checked out their projects? Pretty fab!
I have been loving all of the pallet art pieces lately and have definitely been craving some pops of color in our house. Here's a peak at my "Things I love" board on Pinterest...
And here's the project I decided to recreate!
As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to make my very own!
I actually had all of the materials for this in the goldmine of a shed in our backyard! I used mending plates to attach the boards in the back together and then screwed the boards on top to give it a little more strength.
I painted the phrases on by hand, but I like the stamped look of the original...I might try to find some stamps to use in the future.
I loved the pop of color in the original (with the yellow paint), but this is going to hang in my sewing room/guest room that's painted an apple green. I was worried about the colors clashing! I definitely plan to distress the white painted letters a little so they aren't so stark, and add a bunting (like the original), but I'm pretty pleased with my zero dollar Pinterest challenge!
How about you? Did you recreate something?
