The first thing I did was sand and paint my board. I then went into Word to type up my letters. I used the font Bookman Old Style for the big letters, and Liorah BT for Est. 2008. After I printed my letters out, I cut and taped the last name together. I then colored the back of the paper with chalk. Next I tried to center the name as best I could without actually measuring and taped it onto the board. Once taped, I traced the outline of each letter with a regular pen. I took off the paper, checked my lines, and started painting.
Once the paint was dry, I did the same process with Est. and 2008. These letters were much smaller so I had to cut about half of the bristles off one of my small paint brushes to make it work.
And that is how I made my sign. I hope this was semi-understandable.
