 Am I rushing the season?  We have one nice day and I’m thinking warm sunny beaches!

For all you pallet lovers out there this is a really easy project.  You will, however, need a few supplies.

     Pallet wood, wider is better for this project (my fish were about 20 inches in length)

     Paint in assorted colors and stain

     A jigsaw 

     and a sander

Draw your fishy outline directly onto your pallet wood.

Cut out your fishy outline with a jigsaw and sand all the edges well.  Also sand the flat surface of the fish to get him ready to be painted.

Paint away!  This would be a great group project for kids, everyone could decorate their own fish.

If you need more fish ideas their are a bunch on Pinterest.  Just enough to get your creative juices flowing.

Of course, I thought my fish were too bright so I grabbed my sander again and roughed them up a bit.  Finished off with a coat of dark walnut stain.  That is my preference, feel free to leave the bright colors as is.

I was all finished when I thought my two fish could use a couple of friends.

Now I’m officially ready for the warm weather.
