Vintage Seed Packet Sign

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.  

use pallet wood to make a vintage style sign

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.
