DIY Vintage Scoreboard

DIY Vintage Scoreboard  

I recently made a “vintage” scoreboard for a friend’s nursery.

Vintage Scoreboard 5

 I started with a plain board.

Vintage Scoreboard 7

 I sanded it down.

 And I painted it.

 Once the paint dried, I used painters 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:

Thanks so much to my friend Lexi for sharing her photos and for her creative mind.  I love the vintage scoreboard, and I hope to make one for my boys’ room soon!
