My parents had this great rustic looking floor board left over from redoing their house. It is the perfect size for a wood sign. I found a quote and a font that I liked and printed it to uses as a guide. I tried tracing the letters super hard with a pencil to make an outline but the board in too thick. Then I tried free handing the letters, but it is not the neat, clean look I was going for. If any body has and suggestions on how to paint words on wood please comment under this post!
