How To Make A “Anchors Aweigh” House Number

We added the number 50 to the image using Power Point and then we took some pallet off cuts, wood glue, saddles, rope and chalk and created a one of a kind sign. We cut the pallets into 4 x 35 cm pieces and 2 x 40 cm pieces, sanded them down and then we gave them 2 coats of Rust-Oleum’s American Walnut Stain. It’s one of my favorite stains. The color is so rich and it goes a long way too. We still have a whole bunch left over from when we gave our dresser a awesome luggage themed makeover. Stain the wood with a gorgeous deep walnut colour Once the stain dries we placed the 35 cm pieces side by side and using wood glue and a nail gun, we attached the 40 cm pieces to the 35 cm pieces. Putting it all together by gluing and screw the wood panels You should end up with something like this. Pallet backdrop for the sign We attached a piece of rope to the back of the pallet sign using some saddles and screws. Attached the rope using saddles and a nail All that still needs to be done is to transfer the image on the front of the pallet sign using an overhead projector and chalk.
