Started with a piece of wood...
Broke out my water Based MINWAX in Coffee.
I applied the stain with an old white t-shirt.. below is after one coat... I did three total
After the stain was dry I carefully painted the sides of the board a lime green that I had used in Hunter's bathroom. I love the extra pop of color and personality that it adds to the piece.
Next I used a tape measure to mark every foot
Pleased Number stencils at the appropriate places and painted.
After that I got out my handy Sharpie Paint marker in Black and outlined the letters and marked each inch...
I love the outcome!!!
Only thing that I purchased specific to the project was the piece of wood for $6.00... everything else I had on hand.
