Some Random Acts of Pallet Wood

A while ago I admitted that I have crafting ADD.
I seriously do.
I get bored with the same thing over and over.
So for this post, rather than just show one of my recent projects, 
I'm going to share a ton of random projects.
All are pallet wood.
Most are just stuff I thought up.
A couple of custom signs.
Really just a bunch of randomness.
Kind of like my brain right now.

I'm also getting ready for a show.

My first one ever!

I'm super excited and super nervous at the same time.

Twigs and Twine is renting a space at Junk in the Trunk in Scottsdale, AZ next week
and {J} wanted me to do all the wall art for her show,
which will go up on a wall built out of pallet wood.
Let me just say that it was a TON of work
to tear down 35 pallets. 

That's right.


I sure hope there is enough wood to make the walls.
I haven't heard otherwise, so I'm crossing my fingers.

Luckily I found a local Solar Panel store that was giving away pallets for free.
As much as I wanted.
The problem is that the wood isn't what I normally work with for my signs.
It's more plywood than solid wood.
So they will be perfect for the show walls, but not as much for my signs.

Although I have found some cute ways to use the cross pieces.
Stay tuned for those.
They are super cute!
I hope they do well at the show because I have a ton of cross piece wood left over.
Yeah. 35 pallets worth.

So let's get to some Random Acts of Pallet Wood!

This one as just playing around for a baby room.
I added some silver stars around the sign for added cuteness!

This number sign was a custom order.
No. I do not live at 4417.
But I may do another one for me.

I saw this one on Pinterest and Loved it!
I was playing around with fonts and thought this one was perfect.
It's Crop Font Extra and it's free over at DaFont.
I have used it in my Enjoy the Ride boards in the Past.
Love it!

Here's a few more from that batch.
That Surf Shop sign would have been perfect for my Beachy Bathroom.

Arrows seem to be my signature sometimes.
So Yes. 
I'm doing a boat load of arrows for the show.
These were some natural ones I did.
The show ones will have a bit of color.
Blue, Gray, and Coral.

So here's some of the latest at Twigs and Twine.

These were my first attempt at string art.
Of course my first ones had to be arrows.
Kind of loving them right now.

So there you go.
A whole bunch of random.
And for this random crafty girl, that's just about right.
