We had a big stack of pallet wood that we accumulated. It’s usually feast or famine around here with pallets. I also have a love hate relationship with pallets. Breaking them apart and actually getting good pieces of wood that don’t split and not spending the better part of a day doing it….nearly impossible! So when I get a good pile of pallet pieces going I have to tackle some projects. I had some old hardware laying around so I took some of that pallet wood and created this beautiful Pallet Barn Door Sign.
We cut the pallet wood down, laid all the pieces side by side, and used a couple other pallet pieces cross ways to attach everything in the back. All of the pallet pieces were attached to the back pieces using a nail gun. I added some dark wood stain to the wood, I love how the different types of wood picked up the stain differently.
I added the lettering onto the sign using my Silhouette to create a stencil out of vinyl. Want a tutorial on how I stencil my lettering on my pallet signs? Check THIS one out. I used some chalk paint for the sign because I love how easy it is to work with the stencils. I feel like I have less issues when I use chalk paint. I did some distressing on the letters to go with the whole feel of the sign.
Earlier I mentioned that old hardware I had lying around, well here it is. I acquired these old rusty gate hinges a long time ago and didn’t know what to do with them. I’ve had a few ideas through time but in the end making a sign with them seemed like the best way to display them. I used some E6000 glue and clamps to attach the hinges to the wood sign. I love that stuff!
I choose the saying “Start each day with a grateful heart” because it was a beautiful saying. So often we are swept up in the day-to-day. It’s a nice reminder. All in all the sign came together beautifully! Who knew some pallet wood and old hinges could make such a pretty Barn Door Sign!?
