I wanted my son to have somewhere to display his artwork in his bedroom, rather than just tacking it to the wall like he'd been doing (along with some posters).
I had some leftover pallet wood from the pallet play table that I made for him. So, I used it to make an art display board.
It came with two anchor bolts to secure it to the wall so that it will mount as close to the wall as possible.
I decide to give it a little more rustic look by staining it with some stain I already had from another project.
It was too dark though, so I sanded down the too dark part and started over, just rubbing it on with a rag, 'til I got it looking just right. Finally! I get to hand it up. I put some finishing nails on it and some bull nose clips to hang Jacob's art work.
