What You'll Need

Find a piece of salvaged wood. If you can't find the right size, buy a new one, paint it, then distress it by sanding and banging it up with hand tools. You will also need a utility knife and scissors; drill; measuring tape; hand saw; paintbrush and red paint - sample size (we used Lowe's Valspar Claret); shop vacuum; face mask; salvaged wood board (about 70" to 75" x 20" to 24"); shellac (all natural sealer); two D-rings with screws and picture hanging wire; three large paper bags; painter's tape; and sandpaper.
