It's some kind of board that used to hold letters for printing newspapers. Only a few of the pieces are left, a few symbols and numbers. But I thought it was interesting and had potential.
At first I was going to follow my "I am only shopping for chairs and nothing else" rule but I really liked this. And the guy selling it was willing to go down from $15 to $12 which I thought was a good deal. So I bought it!
My plan was to use the old paint samples I had from when I was deciding on colors for our house to add some color to the board. Each chip was actually an 8.5 x 11 sheet so I had a lot to play with.
I started by measuring the spaces of each strip. Each one was different so I had to be sure I measured correctly.
After all my measuring I cut my paint strips.
Finally I glued them all down and hung it up! Easy!
And an overall shot.
I really like it, and for only $12 I like it even more! What do you think? Should I keep it with the letters or without?
