Pin It When I made this pallet frame, like the PB one from the spring catalog, I found a great tutorial from The Lettered Cottage. Find their instructions on their blog here.
Well, I made the frame and stained in Early American. Then it sat for a few weeks while I decided on what to put on it.
Actually, I'm not really big on poetry, but I've always loved a Robert Frost poem. I couldn't remember the name of it, but I had it memorized. So I googled it and printed it out.
Two weeks past as I made sure that was something I would want on my wall for awhile.
After consulting with a co-worker (who is the human reference book of quotes - Hi Tracy), the Robert Frost poem seemed to be logical. I went home and used these chunky stamp letters.
My sons HATE the fact I used these horrible chunky letters. They said they couldn't read the words and the O looked like D and the N like the H...So then why did I like them? I thought it looked like a sign you would find at a fork in the road in the woods. Or is that just me?
Okay, that photo above doesn't really look that great. But I continued stamping away...
I can read the words. No, it isn't perfect and no, it doesn't look pretty. So, why am I the only one whe likes it?
