What you'll need:
2x12 board at what ever length you prefer. (I made mine 2ft. long.)
Wood stain - color of your choice (I used a cherry color)
Brushes (I used a sponge brush)
It really is one of the easiest projects ever. I went to Lowe's told them what I needed and they cut it to size for me.
I painted on my first coat of stain and let it set up to dry over night.
The next morning, I went ahead and painted on the second coat and let it dry throughout the day.
Then, I filled in the open space with the chalkboard spray paint.
Once it was dried I simply pulled off the tape and really at this point it could be ready to go, I debated on whether or not I really wanted to put the handles on or just leave it as a chalkboard sign...
Let the glue set for a full 24hrs and you're good to go!!
I also took the extra wood from when they cut the boards at Lowe's and made a some wood signs for the front porch!!
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a great New Years!!
