A Personalized Piece of Art That Requires Little Creativity

Project Time: 4 hours

Key Steps: Cut the wood to your desired size, then paint quote, using latex-based paint. Once the quote's paint is dry (for those with bad penmanship, there are stencils for that), lay out the boards so the text is facing down and nail two vertical boards to the back—making sure each horizontal one is nailed in—which will hold the sign together.

Don't Forget: After you properly dismantle the pallet, remove any nails from the wood before you start painting, especially rusty ones that can potentially cause tetanus.
