BINGO Anyone?

I always feel like a kid in a toy store when I get my own new toys to play with.  This Bingo stencil from Old Sign Stencils was calling my name, and I knew right away that I wanted needed to play with it.

Stenciled Bingo Boards
I didn't have a single board large enough for the entire stencil, so I played around with the design and was able to fit it on five individual boards.

upcycled pallet boards
I rummaged through my pallet pile and found several narrow boards left over from another project.  I didn't even bother filling the large holes before painting them with one coat of 
A.S. Old Ochre Chalk Paint.

#oldsignstencils Bingo stencil supplies
I gathered my supplies: A very old and well-used stencil brush, black acrylic paint, blue painter's tape, paper towels for blotting off the excess paint, an index card for holding the paint, and this fun 14" x 14" Bingo Old Sign Stencil from Funky Junk Interiors.

I used a very dry brush to keep the paint from seeping under the stencil.  A couple of fingers and one piece of tape was enough to hold the stencil in place.

The Free Space was stenciled with the same paint I used for the background.

I left 4" of space at the bottom of the boards for some old chippy wooden knobs and a
rusty hook.

The last step was to add a hook to each board.
