Make a Giant Letterboard
This statement wall treatment will surprise you for the way it becomes a real conversation piece with family. You can made a giant letterboard for under $80 dollars.
This project is incredibly simple. It is merely two or three wooden ledges mounted right on the wall. Purchased marquee letters do the rest.
Darcie shared this supply list:
1.5” x 48” wooden shelf
These can really be any size or species of wood. If you have a handy-dandy husband or love working with a saw yourself, you can cut these strips from oak or alder or even pine. But, if you don’t care to cut, you can buy furring strips from any local lumber store or Home Depot. Furring strips are basically the same width and depth, and can be cut to any length you want, plus they are pennies on the dollar.
Velcro Command Strips
Yep, COMMAND STRIPS! Why? Because No nails in the wall necessary! I use three strips per board, and Bam!! Instant Letterboard! The best part about using command strips to put your Letterboard up is that it give you the ability to move it around without too much heart ache. My letterboard has been in three different locations already!
Measuring Tape and Mini Level
Use to space your boards 8.5” apart and check that they are level. Mark and stick! You’re all done!!
Condensed Font Sign Letters
The letters are the most expensive part of this project, $65. I recommend ordering the letters online via www.alphabetsigns.com. The letters come in a variety of sizes, but I’ve found that the 6” condensed works and looks the best for this project.
Photo Box and Separators
Organization is key for quick messaging changes. Store your letters in a decorative box and keep it near your sign.
