How to DIY faux beadboard, subway art for beach theme decor

I was amazed when I saw the subway art made by Cheri of It’s So Very Cheri. Her “Yacht Club & Marina” sign looks authentic, as if weathered by time and the elements. How perfect for beach theme home decor! Then as I read on, I saw that Cheri had made her “beadboard” subway art from a sheet of STYROFOAM Brand Foam! Inventive! Ingenious! Oh, the possibilities!

It’s so Very Cheri shares a tutorial to make faux beadboard.

With Cheri’s technique, you can make your beadboard sign any size and any shape – no power tools required. It’s easy to add grooves or crevices, or a few chips and dents. When you’re ready to hang your sign, it’s lightweight enough to hang with poster putty or maybe a small nail.

Cheri will show you how to get a perfectly aged look.
