I wanted something rustic looking to lean on the shelf in my entryway and this is what I put together out of, your guessed it...pallet wood.
It was a quick and easy project...I cut these pieces from pallet wood and bought four (4) hinges:
I stained the wood with a dark walnut stain and spray painted the hinges with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint. (make sure to spray paint the screws as well!) I then gave the heart a coat of creamy white paint. When it dried, I sanded some of the paint off to reveal the wood underneath using 100-grit sandpaper. I then drilled a 1/2" hole at the top of the heart...large enough to thread a piece of jute through the hole.
After gluing the frame together, I attached the hinges at each corner. At this point, I wasn't sure how I was going to suspend the heart...but I decided to attach a piece of chicken wire to the back of the frame. Now I can attach the heart to the wire with a piece of jute.
Very easy and very simple...and, if I get tired of the heart, I can easily remove the wire and insert a picture!
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend!
