I had my hubby cut a 2x4 to my measurements for me so he could get some more use of his new circular saw. I sprayed it with gray primer, let that dry, and then sprayed painted it with Rust-oleum Ultra Coverage Satin Lagoon. That dried and I scruffed the edges and a little off the fronts with fine grit sandpaper. I printed out the words with the font I wanted to use to try and trace/compare with a pencil, then I went back over the pencil with puffy paint. I was going to put ribbon around it to keep it together, but I thought it looked a little funny, so I just hot glued everything together instead.
