I used a saw tooth picture hanger to hang it on the wall. I gave it one coat of Walnut stain, which I had in the garage.
I marked off 1-inch marks along the entire length of the board. In order to mimic the lines on a ruler, I made the “quarter” lines 2 inches long and the “eighth” lines 1 inch long. Make sense? I drew all the lines in pencil first, then went over them with my sharpie. She used a paint pen so that is an option but the sharpie worked fine.
I used the font (Century) and printed out the numbers 1-6 in 200 point font. I rubbed and traced the numbers with my ballpoint pen. This left a slight indention on the board, I was then able to fill in with the sharpie.
And who does that ?? Do you see that One in the wrong direction. I started with One and was trying to do too many things at once, when I figure out how to fix I will let you know. Don't do that !! ;) Although now it does seem really me !.... a little off.
So, I hope I've inspired you to
steal use your husband's wood while he is at work to make something awesome !!
