Used Book Sign

Like everyone else in blogland, I decided to make a sign.  
I started with some wood left over from my bookcase.
I primed and painted the wood.  Printed some large letters.  Taped them to the board and traced them using carbon paper.   Then I filled in the letters with black paint.

I waited overnight ... which in my case is extreme patience, then sanded it back til I liked it and then added a coat of stain.

That's not where it is going to live.. I'm not sure where yet ... but did I mention that patience thing ... I had to see it hanging up!!!
