Man Cave Board

The honey is working on getting his new business up and running and he is transforming part of the man cave into office space.  I wanted to create something inspirational for him because while very qualified for his line of work anything these days is a risk.  He loves Sun Tzu's Art of War so I searched on line for a fitting quote.  I decided on "Opportunities multiply as they are seized".

Again, I didn't do step by step pictures but the process was simple. 

We already had wood from an unfinished project that we may or may not have started over 3 years ago so I grabbed a piece that measured 12" by 15".  I painted it white, printed out the vinyl on my Silhouette and adhered to the board.  Painted it black and then peeled the letters away.  I was amazed by how professional it looked.

I fought off the urge to go to Home Depot today and have some wood cut because there are going to be many more of these in my future!

Check out all of the places I party here!
