When I go pallet picking, well, I am picky. I know what I like and what works and what doesn't. I always like to grab a few pallets made from thinner hardwood because they are perfect for signs.
I left these pallet boards the length that they came--30" and joined them together with two pallet boards secured perpendicularly with screws on the back. I used stencils for the lettering,
and hand painted the radishes, i.e. early white turnips. Gallatin is the name of our county so it seemed like a good name for the seed company.
It is hanging in the front display that I am renting for the month at the Antique Barn in Gallatin Gateway, MT. (I will show you more of the display next week 😉.) I used a light, golden oak stain over the whole sign and a matte polyacrylic to finish it (affiliate link-- BUY HERE ). I like the matte because it protects, but doesn't make the sign too shiny to read when it is hanging on the wall.
