Step-by-Step Guide:

Step 1: Create Your Pattern

Accent Shapes

Draw your design on the board's surface. Use ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape for Delicate Surfaces to mask along pencil lines. Use a sharp knife to cut along curves and shapes.

Step 2: Paint the Board

Paint Basecoat

For each color in your pattern, paint your color and then gently remove the tape before letting the paint dry. Repeat until your pattern is complete and your board is fully painted.

Step 3: Add Inches & Feet

Create Templates

Measure the inches and feet, starting at 2 and going to just over 5. Use 1-inch tape to mark and paint your ruler lines, and use markers to add numbers. Hang the board so the 2-foot marker is exactly 2 feet from the floor.

Note: For best results, always follow the paint manufacturer's instructions regarding recoat and dry times.
