Create Sign

I had a spare piece of plywood in the garage and an urge to create, so I did just that. I started with an overall gray base coat.

First I layed out painters tape in a chevron pattern, using a ruler to make sure the spacing was exact.

Next I painted dark blue stripes and removed the painters tape. I wiped on a dark stain then immediately wipes it off just to give it an aged look. 

I used sharpie to add the word 'create'. (I had originally attempted to paint the word but I learned my painting skills are lacking.) The colored sharpie actually worked great on this surface. 

Now all I need is to add a picture mount on the back and hang it above my crafting station!
