4PF - Ombre beach sign

Pallet Beach Sign

First up from thehappierhomemaker: A handful of pallet boards, a few paint colors, and a light-duty rope. That’s all you need to make your very own ombre beach sign. This one is simple and perfect for summer.

4PF - ombre stained air plant display

Ombre Air Plant Display

This is certainly the most striking of today’s projects. Those colors are poppin’! As it turns out, those colors came from a spray tint. Kind of like staining wood, but with vibrant pigments. If you’ve got more figure in your pallet wood, a colored stain or tint will really make a big impact over paint. The air plants look great here too.

4PF - ombre stained sign

Ombre Stained Pallet Sign

Ashley, from biggerthanthethreeofus, made something really special. Staining each plank slightly darker than the last and arranging them like this makes the perfect backdrop for a quote or other artwork. Substituting pallet wood for the new lumber could only serve to make this incredible. I want to see that!

4PF - ombre painted mason jars in wood holder

Mason Jar Holder

Some type of mason jar project is on everybody’s to-do list. Right? This one just hopped up to the top. I love the ombre styling of the painted mason jars, but giving them a pallet wood home is icing on the cake. Oooo, ombre icing…
