Pallet Sign - laundry edition

Using repurposed wooden pallets has been very popular over the last year or so.  I for one love how they look and how you can make so many different things with them.  I've been wanting to make a sign out of pallets for so long and I finally got around to doing it.  I needed something to go above our shelves in our laundry room so I came up with this.

This was so super easy, the hardest part was prying the boards off the actual pallet, that took a little time and muscle.  The first one came off pretty easy, so I thought it was going to be a piece of cake, but the rest took so much prying and pulling and hammering!  I totally broke a sweat, but once I got them off it was smooth sailing after that! :)

All I did was paint the boards white, then painted laundry onto it with a blue acrylic paint.  Total cost for this sign was under $2 because I had the white paint and the boards were from my husbands work! Score!! All I had to buy was the blue paint.

Jamie screwed in two boards on the back to hold them all together and then two smaller ones on the top to hang it by.

That's it! I love the way it looks in our laundry room, I'm almost finished getting everything just how I want it in there.  These things take time! And money, which is why I love projects like this, cheap and easy! :)

Have you done anything with wood pallets?

  2. I love all the creative pallet signs people have been coming up with! I've been kicking myself for the past month because I drove past the back of a store and saw they had a bunch of pallets sitting outside by the dumpster. I was afraid people would think I was a garbage picker so I drove on by..lol Love the color paint you used, of course!!

  7. Super cute! I have a pallet in my garage that is just waiting to be turned into a sign. Just one more thing to add to my to-do list:) I think I may put by blog name on it, Shabby Sweet Tea, and put it up in the garage where I paint.
