 My Best of DIY project is this Distressed Pallet Wood Wall Hanger.  I used more of my pallet wood  from my How to Take Apart a Pallet Easily post from a few weeks ago and a few other supplies.

I wanted my pallet wood to have a distressed look and I started with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue and topped it off with General Finishes Milk Paint in Snow White.

I started with a dry brush base of the Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue and it allowed it to dry for only 5 minutes.

After the 5 minutes had passed I covered my pallet wood with a coat of General Finishes Milk Paint in Snow White……waited 5 minutes and then applied another coat of the Snow White.  I waited another 5 minutes and then proceeded to the next step.

There is where the fun (the distressing) begins.  You’ll need Duck Tape and a hair dryer or a heat gun for this.

Use the heat gun or hair dryer on your piece for about 30 seconds moving back and forth over the entire surface.

 Now add some Duck Tape on top of your finished wood adhering well.  I really smoothed it out and pushed it into the crevices.

Rip off the Duck Tape and your left with a nice distressed finished with no sanding required.

I pulled out my Cricut machine and cut out the word beautiful using vinyl.  I used the vinyl rather than painting so I can change what the wood says with the seasons or my mood!  (I may add a yellow sunburst to it next spring ~ who knows!?)

 I had some brushed nickel knobs left from my kitchen mini redo and I dry brushed these with the Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue as well.  I wasn’t sure how many I would use at first so I did 4 but I ended up only needing one for this project.  When the knob was dry I drilled a hole in the center of my distressed pallet and added the knob.

I wrapped a child’s wooden hanger hook with some ribbon in colors to complement my wall hanger, added a vintage child’s slip to the hanger and a lavender sachet made from a vintage doily.  I also added a small grapevine wreath to the upper right corner.
