A pallet fell into our hands last fall and something cute and clever HAD to be done with it!
First I stained the whole thing with a dark stain...(and then let it dry for a few months while I tried to decide what to do with it next! I changed my mind several times!)
Then I applied a deer silhouette in vinyl to block out that shape and painted over the whole pallet with white chalk paint (sooo easy to use chalk paint!). When that was dry, more vinyl was applied to stencil on the chevron pattern and merry christmas.....oh! and don't forget the bright red nose!
