A Dad is...DIY Wood Quote/Magnetic Photo Holder
I had Pinned something similar to this ages ago (here) that I liked but I didn't know how to create the exact look I wanted.
I was talking with my sister and we came up with the idea of using a piece of old barn board flooring from her barn (built over 120 years ago) to make this. My sister found a piece of wood that was approximately 12 inches wide and lightly planed it to get a smoother surface.
If you, like me, don't have access to old wood, you can buy freshly cut 12 inch wide planks from a local hardware store and distress it to get a similar look. Take a hammer to it, scratch it up, sand it a bit here and there. It is quite easy to do.
What do you think? I know need to find something equally great for Father's Day!
