Doilies and Pallet Wall Decor

Hey y'all so I guess my newest obsession is doilies, ha! Well really Ive always been into them and knew eventually I would want to do some kinda wall decor with them.  On Pinterest you can find some really neat ideas such as doilies on canvas or framed doilies, but I strive to be a little different an opted to use a pallet for this project.

Awhile back I asked the hubbs to go out and find me some pallets and what do you know he came back with a handful and they were free! 

I requested the hubbs help on this one, initially I wanted to hammer out the wood pieces but that seemed a little more difficult than expected. 

I sanded the boards down a bit and used wood glue to attach the pieces together, no nailing or screwing  needed for this project!

I painted the boards a teal, which I love!

I used jute and a staple gun for the back

I used the glue gun to glue down the doilies although I think mod podge would have been a great option but I didn't have enough for the project.  I was also working on a couple of frames that I purchased  at the Salvation Army. I purchased the frame for under $2 and shabby-fied it with some acrylic paint and sand paper.

and this one I painted and added some scrabble letters

Keep in mind this wall/mantel is a work progress but this how the doilies and frames turned out
