DIY Vintage Scoreboard
I recently made a “vintage” scoreboard for a friend’s nursery.
I started with a plain board.
I sanded it down.
And I painted it.
Once the paint dried, I used painter’s tape to make lines/borders.
I painted the lines white.
I printed out the lettering for the board and used carbon paper (flash from the past!) to transfer the lettering.
Once I had my letters outlined, I painted them white.
I repeated the lettering process until I had all my words done.
And then I added chalkboard paint so the score could be changed (as well as ball, strikes & outs).
Once everything was painted, I went through and sanded the edges and sections of the surface to give it the vintage, worn look we were going for.
And here are *photos of the scoreboard in Wyatt’s (really cute sports-themed) nursery: *The nursery photos are all taken by my friend Lexi of Alexis Smith Photography.
Thanks so much to my friend Lexi for sharing her photos and for her creative mind. I love the DIY vintage scoreboard, and I hope to make one for my boys’ room soon! Go create something!
