"A" is for Alphabet #3

Make: nursery alphabet wall art

A custom request for a new little boy in Florida.

This version combines all the alphabet cards on one piece of wood versus my previous versions where the wood was cut into three panels:

This customer requested 4 rows of 7 cards each and we decided to add the 'blank' cards on the bottom row, the first card is a moon and stars:

And the last card is a sun:

It would look great even without the filler 'blank' cards.

Here's how I made the alphabet art:

1. Cut 3/4" plywood to 24" x 27" and paint two coats Martha Stewart rainwater.
Sand to distress edges and stain with Minwax Early American:

2. Lay out the cards for equal spacing and hammer into place with #6 carpet tacks:

Add two sawtooth hangers to back.

For more how-to details check my previous posts here and here.
