Remember Zelda?She was the entertaining proprietor of a fun antique shop in Carpinteria, CA where we picked up this great old surfboard for my little guy's bedroom:It was all rustic white, which I loved, but I wanted to add something to it.

I typed the lettering on the computer and then used tracing paper to outline them on the board. Good old painter's tape helped me paint straight lines. I'm still undecided on sanding the part I painted so it looks as antiqued as the old white underneath? Should I go for it? I suppose I could try it on one stripe and if it looks terrible I could re-paint, right? :-) Here is it's home on his bedroom wall, right above the surfer dude lamp I made last fall:
