I am admittedly obsessed with taking photos. Especially of my kids at the beach. I am not, however, as obsessed with printing said photos out to enjoy. I do try and make an effort to come up with creative and easy ways to display as many of the these photos as possible. My son and I just finished reading Moby Dick together and I have been inspired to create something with a whale ever since. The trick to making sure those photos see the light of day is to make displaying them not only adorable but as easy to swap out as possible.
I’m no stranger to making things with pallet wood. In fact, if I told you just how many pallets I had on hand it would probably be embarrasing. These particular boards had reached an amazing patina all on their own. They just needed a little cleaning up.
Since I was inspired by Moby Dick I decided to go with one of the new colors in the Americana Multi-Surface line called Overcast. I thought the color also had a fitting name. I mixed it with a tad of water to give the finished product move of a white washed appearance.
And there she blows! The quickest, easiest and quite-adorable-even-if-I-do-say-so-myself way to get those summer memories off your camera card and out for everyone to enjoy. What will you create to put those summer memories on display?
