Hey friends, today I wanted to share a simple and quick DIY farmhouse styled “eat” sign. Here I go with my Michael’s galvanized letters again. I mean, with their sales and coupons, who can say no to these, right?! They are so cute and I just love the touch it brings to our home. And it’s pretty clear I love having words all around the house. That’s probably the main reason I have chalkboards everywhere! Anyway, let’s jump right into it!
The materials I needed to make this:
-4 pallet pieces that actually came in the mail with a huge delivery package for MR. J
-150 grit sand paper
-a mixture of Minwax stains in the shades classic oak, classic gray and Jacobean (whatever was on hand really, lol)
-an old t-shirt to apply the stain
-a good ol’ hand saw (because I did it in my garage and didn’t wanna make a big mess)
-the galvanized letters.
-hooks to be able to hang sign
I basically just put 3 of the pallets together and nailed it with 2 smaller pieces going across on each end and nailing them together that way. Then sanded it down just to get a bit of a more cohesive and smooth piece. I then stained it, added some hanging hooks in the back and finally added 3 nails to the front to hang the letters. Simple as 1,2,3 =)
The reason I used nails to hang the letters, was because I felt if I ever felt the need to switch things around, I could change it to one of my favorite drinks: tea!! I hate to drink my calories, but when I want something fun, I love going to Starbucks and getting their black Tazo iced tea, with classic sweeter and a splash of half and half (lightly iced)! Sounds so specific, right? Yeah, that’s crazy Alma for you! But go try it! It’s so simple and yummy!
This project takes about an hour or so to do, and adds a beautiful farmhouse touch to the space. I am really enjoying seeing it in the otherwise, overlooked corner! Isn’t it fun! I’m personally in love! Have you done any DIY projects lately that you just adore?? Please do share in the comment section at the top, I’d love some new ideas! I do have another pallet project coming soon! I just haven’t had the time to work on it, but I look forward to sharing that with you too! Have an awesome day and keep creating!!!
