Rustic Pallet Heart with an Antique Hinge


I enjoyed this project a lot...and I mean a lot. I have a pallet stash in my garage that I just stare and stare until I come up with a project (mostly they turn into signs) but this time its different. 

I used 2 pallet pieces to cut out my heart. This was the first time I ever used a scroll saw and it was surprisingly simple. The cuts are pristine and leaves the wood smooth to the touch. 

Once my heart outline was cut I used connecting plates that I had on hand to attach the pallets together. I dry brushed some Old White and attached a vintage hinge to finish it off. 

This turned to be a beautiful piece of rustic art. You better believe I will be hunting for more vintage hinges at the flea markets to make more of these.
