Sand Finish

To protect pets and pet owners from splinters, lightly sand all surfaces of the pallet using orbital sander and sanding pads.

Customize With Paint or Stain

Depending on the intended overall look, customize the surface of the wood with stain or paint.

Tip: For a weathered look, consider diluting paint with water, then applying with a rag and wiping off excess so that wood grain shows through.

Stencil Name

Place stencil along front horizontal plank of wood. Use painter’s tape to keep it in place, then spray on paint. After about 10 minutes, remove stencil.
