The wood I used is from an old left over fence panel. To be sure I cut straight lines, I used the Kapro 313 Measure Mate.
Then I used my Delta Jigsaw to cut the panels, following the line created with the Kapro 313 Measure Mate.
Next I used the Delta Sander to sand down the fence panels to remove all the rough patches and imperfections.
I used the panel as is, but found it too dark. So I decided to paint on a light layer of Plaid Milk Paint in Winter Harbour to give the panel a nice white washed appearance.
Once the panels dried, I sanded the panels again to remove some of the paint and give it a more distressed appearance.
Now my panel is ready to use as a background for my projects. It's large enough for my bigger projects, yet light enough to pick up and move around.
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by.
