DecoArt DT Tutorial - Chalky Finish Decor - Wood Pallet Board

Happy friday my crafty friends (:o)

Thanks for your large interest at my chalk paint decor week.
Today i'm sharing a 12" x 14" handmade wood pallet board with you

The DecoArt products i used

DecoArt Americana Decor Chalky Finish *rouge*, *refreshing*, *new life*, Light Satin Varnish, Creme Wax *golden brown* and Metallic Lustre *copper kettle*

I joined together some pallet wood

Roughly painted a first layer with Chalky Finish *rouge* Let dry...

As the paint was dry, sanding with 60 don't need a powertool but it goes a bit faster..

...followed by sanding with 120 grain

Removed the dust

Applyed a second layer of *rouge* Let dry...

Some spots of vaseline or badger balm

Next layer of paint with Chalky Finish *new life* Let dry...

More vaseline spots...but some... in different places as the first time

Next layer of paint with Chalky Finish *refreshing* Let dry..

I used a damped towel to remove the vaseline spots. I then used a dry towel to buff the paint to shine...

*Lost and Found* is a digital image transfer.
I've created a reversed script on my computer and printed out with a laser printer.
Tutorial digital image transfer can be found here

Applyed Metallic Lustre *copper kettle* around the edges and sealed the board with Light Satin Varnish

Fixed two wire baskets

Applyed Creme Wax *golden brown* to clothespins (pegs)

Glued the pegs to the board

Thanks for reading up to the end (:o)
I really appreciate your patience and comments


Happy crafting

Hallo Elly, jetzt war ich schon eine ganze Zeit nicht mehr hier. Dein DT Projekt gefällt mir außerordentlich gut! Besonders schön finde ich dein Journal Cover und das Lost & Found.... und die Flaschen - naja, also eigentlich alles :)
Schönes Wochenende!
