Oh, I would say a few months back, while I was browsing the garden section at Lowes,
I spied a wood pallet near their trash.
I asked the cashier if I could have it.
She said sure, and then asked why?
I said I am going to do something with it, but I have no clue yet!
She laughed and gladly handed it over to me.
It took me until today to figure out just what I was doing with it!
Old white, Annie Sloan paint in hand,
some craft paints, and I was good to go!
First, I cleaned it real good with some simple green.
Next, I painted it Old White.
Next, process after drying,
I took these two color craft paints, an old rag and just ragged those colors on.
I then sanded it, and put the dark wax on.
Hey with cows all the rage now, I just so happened to have these pretty cheese plates for years now..
They used to be displayed around my kitchen window.
I had that look for a long while, but it needed a change.
This pallet took on such an aged appearance.
I love the hints of red, copper and dark wax coming through.
Makes a perfect little display shelf.
Paired up with my $3.00 Goodwill table...I would say I done good!
Have a great day gals!
Hope you get in on my burlap giveaway
