Materials Needed:

  • 3/4-inch-thick plywood, same size as sign
  • table saw (optional)
  • white primer
  • paint brush
  • white melamine iron-on edging ($7, lowes.com)
  • drill
  • metal hairpin table legs
  • screws
  • clear construction adhesive
  • spring clamps

Step 1

Cut a 3/4-inch-thick piece of plywood the same size as your sign, or have a home improvement store do it for you.

Step 2

Paint the entire piece of plywood with white primer. Let dry. Cover the plywood’s edges with white melamine iron-on edging.

Step 3

Drill pilot holes into the underside of the plywood for each table leg—we used metal hairpin legs—and screw them in.
