Vintage License Plate Map Pallet Art

diy-license-plate-map.jpg

Angela from blue i style has long been obsessed with the Reclaimed License Plate Map from Uncommon Goods. When she decided to go with a vintage, handmade look for her son’s room, the map was a shoo-in. However, at almost $4,000, Angela knew it would never be in her budget and pulled together a plan to get the same look with a much- less-expensive license plate map she found printed on heavy gauge steel and an old pallet. She says, “The final product, while not made from real license plates, has a very similar feel at a much better price. The final price tag for my knock off version was only $140!”

Large Vertical Wood Christmas Sign

Melissa from Two It Yourself was inspired by a a vertical wood Christmas sign from Pottery Barn to turn a pallet into a sign of her own. And since she already had the materials on hand, it cost her nothing but a little time! Melissa decided to go with a different finish than Pottery Barn’s and used one of her favorite techniques to achieve an aged look. She also customized her text and simply printed the letters from the computer to trace around. I agree with Melissa – her free sign is just as charming as Pottery Barn’s pricey one!

Geometric Pieced Wood Wall Art

For only “$15 and an afternoon of work,” Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic created a stunning piece of wooden art for her wall. I love how this pallet style art combines modern and rustic with the geometric design, natural wood grain, and distressed edges. Talk about a great scrap buster project if you’ve got some extra plywood and boards in your garage.

Pallet Number Art

Today I’m going to do a double feature of two fabulous Pottery Barn-inspired projects submitted by a reader named Jill who doesn’t have a blog but loves a good knock off like the rest of us. Jill was inspired by a number canvas from Pottery Barn and created her own from a pallet. I am loving the look of the font she used!

Valentine’s Pallet Art

As shared on Infarrantly Creative, I gave my own little nod to Valentine’s Day by creating a piece of wall décor appropriate for the holiday but also versatile enough to claim a permanent home on my wall. I love the combination of the rustic pallet wood look and bright yellow ruffles. It’s completely unexpected and makes me smile every time I see it!

Santa Pallet Art

Last year Matt and Jacque from The DIY Village created this Santa art from repurposed deck boards for a pallet art look. Matt did a phenomenal job tracing the original image on the computer to create a stencil, and then a little red paint brought Saint Nick to life. As Matt points out, any canvas or wood would be a great backdrop for creating your own piece of inexpensive Christmas art.
