New Deer Silhouette on Wood

Hello hello!  Here’s a look at the latest TradeFare piece I’m just in love with :)

I’ve been so inspired by all the deer and antelope out now in home decor lately & finally came up with a look I wanted to create and add to the shop.

Originally I wanted to use the also very popular right now pallet wood as the base of the piece but came across some info on the dangers of toxic chemicals in some pallet wood…instead of going to the trouble of finding chemical free pallet wood I went with my trusty old pine wood from Home Depot!  So make sure to check out the wood you’re using for the fun DIY projects ~ I had no idea and glad to avoid the chemicals.  Learn more here and here.

For the deer I used a picture I liked of a real deer and found an awesome website through Pinterest that allows you to enlarge a pic to any size and print it from your own printer!  Love that!!  You can check out the site here.  I did some experimenting and came up with a way to stain the wood and give it a little bit of an aged look & used a creamy white paint the deer silhouette.  When everything was dry I carefully distressed it until I had the look I was going for.

The wood looks great with a warm cocoa stain & I love the not so straight cuts of each piece of wood.

I’m hanging it over my bed for now until I find a better spot – gives a fun look to the space!  Here’s a few other looks for this cute new piece.

          

Check it out here in the etsy shop!

Another fun piece I think turned out great!  Would love to hear what you think :)
