Project Re-Do!

Hi All:
When I was in Henderson last month I stumbled upon these "blocks" of wood. They appear to be manufactured so I took a picture so I could re-create them. I'm sorry the pic is not that great as my "smart phone" isn't very smart or I'm not.... One or the other. :)
So.... I found a couple of 2x4 ends that pretty much matched up. Did a little sanding to smooth out the edges and I was ready to go. I applied a bottom of black DecoArt paint. Then Tim Holtz crackle paint by Ranger in Faded Jeans. I added shading with Tim's Distress Ink in Faded Jeans and Black Soot. My letters are grungeboard (painted black).... Again by Tim!
 
These were sooooo simple to make. I love that they have such an old rustic/painted fence look. I'll be making more of these.  Hope you are all having a great weekend!
Happy Trails!
Kim
