My first project for the new year! I made this gem for my mother’s library (opesopinions) as her Christmas gift and have been dying to share it! Of course I needed to wait until she got it first 😉
I got the idea off of pinterest! This picture to be exact:
So I grabbed my handy Dad and we got to work! We found some awesome weathered wood, cut it into three pieces, built a backing, and attached the boards to it.
We then painted it with a weathered gray paint and smoothed over some white (taking a wet cloth and dabbing it to make it look faded).
After letting it dry I printed out the letters I wanted to use for my mom’s library, cut them out, and lined them up on the wood. My husband took a drill and pre-drilled the holes around the words.
We then nailed them in and wrapped them with yarn!
I absolutely love how it turned out and will hopefully be making something similar for my craft room!
