I’m such a geek – as if you hadn’t figured that out by now. I get as excited as a child counting down the days until something major, like a vacation or holiday or closing on our new house. That joy is why I chose this week’s Pinterest project. I made this Countdown Plaque!
It was ridiculously easy! I really enjoyed making this one too!
First I gathered my supplies.
Then I sanded the 1″ x 6″ board that I had cut to 36 inches at my local hardware store. Once it was nice and smooth, I base coated it with white spray paint.
While that was drying, I went inside and printed out the lettering I wanted to use for the sign. Then I took the printout and used it to cut out the letters from clear contact paper.
When everything was cut out, I laid the letters out on the sign and peeled the backing paper off and stuck them onto the wood.
Next I sprayed the whole thing with 2 coats of black Chalkboard spray paint.
When it was completely dry, I peeled the contact paper letters off to reveal the white paint underneath.
After all the letters were removed, I laid out the hanging brackets evenly spaced out on the back and secured them.
Now I can’t wait until I get to hang it up in our new house!
