I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July full of family, friends, cookouts and fireworks!
I am so excited to share this project with you all today! It's been on my "To Do" list for months and I couldn't be happier to have it finished and turn out better than I imagined.
My kids art table is used daily and I wanted to create a space that was just for them. I've always loved the look of these handmade family math signs, but at $121 a piece buying them was out of the question. The good thing is I knew I could easily make my own wood flash cards for a fraction of the price.

I kept this project simple and opted to use precut birch plywood that I picked up from a local craft store for about $5.00 a piece.
new saw and I have to say, I love it! It's the only saw I've owned with a laser and let me tell you it makes a world of difference. If you don't own a fancy saw you can always use a simple hand saw.
Minwax Espresso stain. I also stained the sides of both plywood pieces to ensure the trim pieces blended in nicely.
aging dust then added 2 sawtooth hooks for easy hanging.
I love, love, LOVE how the flash cards turned out and couldn't be happier with the kids art/homework space.
