I’m wondering if the lettering is actually vinyl and not paint. It’s all very uniform.

The wood may have been smoothed out with a planer, or they got lucky and found a nice smooth old piece to play with.

Those letters don’t even look real to me!  Like PP said, it might be vinyl or some kind of stick-on letters.  It does not look like paint.

I agree with the PPs. It’s probably cut vinyl. Very cute too! 🙂

I agree the numbers and letters look like decals that were put on, not painted on.

I also think they are stick-on letters (notice the difference in spacing in the two instances of “05”), but you could probably also get an effect like this with screen printing as well.

It looks like it could be a used table top. You could look at craigslist/yardsales, take the legs off and the pieces that go around the edge of the table and thats it.

The wood isn’t that thin.  It looks like maybe some reclaimed wood.  I wouldn’t be able to tell you what it is from, but my FBIL found something like that from an old church they were tearing down.  Possibly floor boards?

@jtalasek:  I agree with everyone else that they definitely did not paint on most of those letters and numbers since they are too perfect. I’m also a little blown away by the dates. In this scenario they’ve been together for over ten years and engaged for only 3 months!

It actually looks like photoshopped letters to me! But what do I know LOL.
