How-To:

Take your X-ACTO knife and cut off the ends of the balsa wood. You don't want it to look perfect, the more rugged looking, the better!

Now if you want, take your black permanent marker and just draw a few wood grain lines on the planks. These don’t need to be perfect either, remember these are old beaten up boards! After that, take your foam brush and your brown paint and mix it with a little water so that it almost becomes more of a stain than a paint.

Cover one side of each of your planks with the paint.

To display your boards, simply take your VELCRO® Brand Industrial Strength Low Profile fasteners and attach one of the coins on each side of the back of the boards and then to the corresponding position on the window.
