I had Jim cut me some wooden blocks. He said that all I need was to sand them....they were way too rough and I was way too lazy to do that :)
...so.....I took my handy dandy drywall compound and drywalled the blocks. Once they dried, I just had to easily sand the compound down....PERFECT!
I painted each one a different color and then traced the letters on each side.
Painting white letters was not so fun. I couldn't find my fine tip paint brush....BOYS!!! Anyway, I did the best I could. I think I might take a black sharpie to outline the letters....maybe antique the blocks with some burnt umber paint...I don't know, but for now that'll do!
Sorry for the terrible pictures....If the sun would ever decide to shine it would be a miracle! I'm linking the to Kimba's DIY Day!
