    • #1 round brush

    • wood pallet


    1. You will need a wood pallet of choice, brushes, and your favorite Americana colors: French Mauve, Williamsburg Blue, Camel, Snow Titanium White, Slate Grey, Terra Coral, and Mint Julep Green. I upcycled this old pallet sign!
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Use a flat brush to paint each slab one of those Americana colors and repeat pattern of colors until entire pallet is filled.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Use a pen or pencil to trace and transfer the "Wanderlust word pattern" and the "compass" pattern onto the pallet.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Use a round brush to paint the words and compass on in Snow Titanium White. Then use a chip brush to dip into the White and dry brush over the whole pallet.
