So my husband has had this long time friend who was getting married, and this was his 2nd marriage. They both were coming from two house holds that had everything. They had a destination wedding that was amazing and unfortunately we were not able to attend. So I really wanted them to have something they would remember their new start together. Of course when I decided on this little adventure in my brain it was like the day before the reception when I had to have this gift ready.  No problem, I got this ….. Tick.. Tock..

So I had some pallet boards I used 7 boards total and cut them into approximately  four to five feet. I staggered it to give it a more rustic look and appeal. I used screws to secure to two thin boards on the back of this project to stabilize it. I had to use a printer to print out the size of letters I needed. I then used graphite paper to transfer the lettering to the sign. I still had craft paint hanging around so I painted it with what I had. I then used a stencil I had and gave it some finial touches. The last thing I had to do was to put two or three coats of quick dry polyurethane on the sign to seal it.

It was a fantastic hit! I picked the sea-foam green color because it was one of their wedding colors.The black because it looked clean but rustic. They now have this displayed above their fireplace.
