  • miter saw
  • 2×4 board cut into four 14 1/2 inch pieces with ends cut to a 45 degree angle to fit together
  • 2×12 board cut into 11 1/4 inch by 11 1/4 inch square
  • 2×4 board cut into nine 3 1/2 inch by 3 1/2 inch blocks
  • foam paint brush
  • rag
  • hand sander & sandpaper
  • vinyl letters

First you’ll assemble your board. We used a nail gun to do this.

    The bottom piece of our board fit so snugly that we almost didn’t have to nail it in. Buuuut just incase, we added 2 nails on each side to just to help hold it in place. After it was assemble, I sanded all the edges. Then I sanded my 2×4 blocks as well.

    Next, I used some Americana Décor Color Self-Sealing Stain to stain my board & blocks a nice blue!

    I let that dry really well, and then I applied my vinyl lettering. Easy peasy!
