I'm going to show you how to distress new wood a quick and easy way. If you've been wondering how to make new wood look old and distressed wait until you see this method. I couldn't believe how fast it dried..
DIY project made from pallet wood. The "O" is interchangeable. Replace with a heart for Valentine's Day, or a mini wreath for Christmas, etc. The main board is a piece of wood I had laying around that measures roughly 1/2" thick, 5" wide and 60" tall & the individual pieces are 3.5" wide pallet boards cut down to 10" long and wood glued to the main board after being stained. I know the C is upside down (my mistake) but nobody notices and I'm ok with that.
