Step by Step Instructions
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.
Step 3. Drill Pilot Holes
Do not start this step until your paint has dried completely! Drill 3 pilot holes for the hooks using your drill driver and a drill bit.
Step 4. Attach Hooks
Also using your drill driver, screw in and secure the 3 coat hooks to your sign.
Step 5. Hang Sign
Using your drill, attach picture mounting brackets to back of sign. Be careful to measure appropriately or your sign may hang crooked! Find 2 studs in the wall and drill a screw into each stud. Attach wire to brackets and hang sign evenly.
