From Pallet to Art with a Beatles Twist

I have repurposed another dusty pallet and made it something charming and unique!
I used the Beatles lyrics from "All You Need Is Love" and painted the panels alternating
black & white stripes. I put a big light turquoise heart in the center because red would be too obvious. 
No, really, because I am loving turquoise this year, so why not a blue heart?
Anyway, I think it turned out really funky and fun.

I listed it in my Etsy shop (SOLD & now, hanging in Deep South Pout boutique), but I would so love to hang it in my living room. 
This would so rock in a teen room, too. Oh, or even in a funky beach cottage.

Right now, it is sitting on my living room floor, next to a guitar, of course.

Pallets can be found all over the place and sometimes stores will give them away. 
I have made tables with them, too. There are lots of ideas floating around on blogs like Apartment Therapy and Pinterest. I hope this has inspired to take an old wooden piece and make art out of it.

P.S. I have entered this project in Not Just a Housewife's DIY contest. Check it out!

P.S.S. This can be found here, too!
