Great idea for a wedding, anniversary, baby or any date you want to remember. I've used some lumber for a nice chunky surface. I hand painted the board a cottage cream color and used black for the roman numerals. I also used a glazing technique and distressed it for an aged look.
The numbers in this example say "April 19, 2003". April = IV, 19 = XIX and 2003 = MMIII.
What date would you like?
