Jumping on a Trend: Pallet Wood Sign

I know that rustic signs made of pallet wood are a popular trend right now and that in a couple of years they might be “out”.  But I like them (when they are meaningful and used sparingly) and they match my style of decorating, so I jumped on the bandwagon.  I had a big empty space above my bed which I didn’t know how to fill and the idea of a sign was appealing.  When browsing items at a school sale recently, I happened to see an unfinished pallet wood sign made by Mr. Kamp, already put together and ready to be painted:

 Our wedding text was from Ruth, which is where I got my inspiration:

I stained the wood, free-handed the lettering with gold paint, and clear coated the whole thing. You can tell that I didn’t use a stencil, but oh well….

 

????????????????????????????????????

And yes, I redid most of our bedroom in the last year.  I’ll have to show some of the projects involved!
