recycled timber wall art D.I.Y

I have been lugging this piece of wood around for years. Its things like this that make people suspect I am a bit mad, but I always new I would make something with it eventually. Its perfect patina and weathered charm SPOKE to me. It did.

For this project all you need is a packet of alphabet stickers (I found mine at typo) AND an old piece of timber. Keep an eye out on the side of the road or take a visit to your local tip. There are ALWAYS good things at the tip... Go on, you know you want to...

FYI - The sentiment is not my own, I think I remember seeing it in a magazine somewhere?? But I can not remember for the life of me, so if you think I need to be giving credit for that somewhere please let me know and I will be happy to do so...

Easy! five minutes including sticking on the wall with some 3M wall adhesive tabs...

If you make one I would love for you to show me!
