Horse Pallet Art

Soprano's room re-do is coming along. After painting, we decorated with some loaded up picture gallery shelves and with embroidery hoops. Our next project was to upcycle an old pallet into more art for this horse-themed room. I liked this version via Pinterest and wanted to create my own.
Bass got an old pallet from our local Habitat Re-Store. He dismantled it and cut the boards to the length I wanted. After attaching the boards together with some thin wood boards, he also added a metal hanger.
 The hanger thing is cool and all but the front is the pretty part. :) I cut a horse shape (from Cricut's Old West cartridge) out of vinyl and put it on the boards. Then I dry-brushed over the vinyl with the same color paint as her trim (Olympic Crumb Cookie). When it was dry, I peeled the vinyl off and voila. Bass sanded a few parts where I got a little heavy-handed with the paint for this final result.
Now it's the feature piece that hangs above her bed. (We're looking to get her a different bed this spring which is why it's hanging a little high at the moment.)
Just a few more projects to go before the room reveal!
