Step 1. Size + Sand
Have the board cut to size at your local DIY store when you purchase it. Sand your board for a softer look. Even if you don’t have many rough edges, sanding adds a finished, professional look to any piece.
Step 2. Tape and Paint
Thoroughly sand your cut pieces of the pallet. Use 3 strips of tape to separate the board into 4 sections. Then, trace “HOME” letter stencils onto wood with a pencil. Now, paint your wood carefully and stay outside of the stencil – you can paint over the tape (carefully – avoid soaking tape with paint). Allow the paint to dry fully and remove the tape to reveal clean lines.
