I grabbed a small bottle of white acrylic paint and bordered the plank on the top and bottom just to give it a sense of unity, and then using a fine tipped brush, I wrote out my quote – a little homage to one of our favorite Dave Matthews Band songs (‘Tripping Billies’).
One or two coats later, I had my finished product!
If you do give this one a shot, I’d love to see how you decided to customize your piece. I think my roommate loves it, despite tightening the screws for me; I think he’ll love the final piece when he acts totally surprised to see it on Valentine’s Day. Now the real question…where the heck to hang it….
