So, last week when I was home with a sick little girl I got to get some crafting done. This was one of my projects.
I got three pieces of balsa wood at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 a piece. They are each 2 inches wide by 36 inches long. Here's the link: http://shop.hobbylobby.com/products/36-x-2-x-3/32-balsa-wood-sheets-402917/
First, I laid the three pieces out and painted them with white chalk paint. After they dried I laid the three pieces out and attached them together using popsicle sticks as a brace. This worked out well since the pieces were so lightweight.
Next, I printed off what the word "Market". Sorry, I can't recall the font/size. But I did have to print it out across four separate pages.
I taped the pages together and laid them out across the boards. I traced the letters onto the board so that the letters were indented into the wood.
I then outlined the letters with a sharpie, and painted the letters in with black paint.
Lastly, we hung it up above my kitchen sink using some heavy duty poster strips. I think this made my kitchen feel so much more homey!
