Pallet Style Sign Using New Wood

Certain wood sign orders I opt for new wood vs. pallet (reclaimed) wood.  This happened to be one of those orders.  Usually when a client specifies that the sign they are ordering is for a wedding gift or a bridal shower gift, I go with new wood, unless they really want an old rustic look.

I was still wanting that rustic warn look, but with a cleaner look.  The new wood with this white washing technique was the way to go for this one.  I have done white washing a few different ways.  In this DIY I used a black background instead of a gray or dark wood stain.  It complimented the black stenciling on the front just right.

I share with you in this video tutorial the whole process from start to finish of how this pallet style wood sign came together below.  
I hope you enjoy!
