Painting a wood pallet plaque is one of those simple craft ideas that I love. In just a little time, you can make some pretty inexpensive home decor items.
I had seen these cute wood mini -pallets, or pallet plaques in the craft store for just a few dollars. I bought a couple without really knowing what I was going to do with them. I stored them with my craft supplies for the future. A few weeks later, I heard about Dixie Belle paints and was offered a sample to test out and review for myself. I knew immediately that I would use the pallet plaque for my project. This post contains affiliate links which helps support the running of this site, see full policy here.
They sent me a few paint colors and I could not decide which color to use as I truly loved how deep all the colors were. I finally decided on using the Butter Cream Chalk Paint on my project.
The paint was creamy and smooth and ready to use.
I painted the pallet in just a single coat.
Once it dried, I used this lovely stencil for a fun and festive greeting.
Using a copper paint, I stenciled with a foam topped brush.
Once it was dried, I loved the look.

I really loved the smoothness and coverage that Dixie Bell offered! They have so many wonderful colors, that I seriously plan to paint several more items.
The features I loved about Dixie Belle are:

- It only took one coat for full coverage

I honestly loved these paints and would recommend them for your next home decorating project.
Do you have a home decor item that could use some repainting?
So cute! Right up my alley. I have to check out that new paint.
Thank you Debbie! It would look awesome with one of your stencil templates. 🙂
Simple but gorgeous. It leaves a nice effect. I'll make one for the holidays!
It really is and you know how I love simple!
