Pallet Project - My Beach Boys




          Oh, how we LOVE the beach! It is the time of the year we can get away from everything & spend quality time together. Wonderful memories have been captured each year, but these two pictures are my favorite. 

      GROUPON ( http://www.groupon.com/deals/gg-gallery-wrapped-canvas-3 ) posts Canvas on Demand deals all the time. 

A 16" X 20" canvas print is orignally $112.00. Groupon, only $29. 

      I wanted the pictures together, but not in a typical frame. I love the look of old wood and a dear friend had given me some pallets. It's fun when you are working with something that is free. If you mess it up, it's no big deal. I have plenty of OOPS paint that I have picked up over the years. SO the project was FREE! Love FREE!





        The hardest part was taking the pallet apart. I put it back together, lining up the pieces of wood closer together. Painted it white, and applied a coat of polyurethane to give it a more finished look.
