I decided to post some pics of the progress of my zombie stand and how it was made. I used some old pickets from our fence and a scrap 2x6 to create the stand. The uglier the wood the better. I then taped off an area and roughly painted in the dark blue. I also painted the 2x6 black. Then I printed out my text to use as a template and transfered it onto the wood using chalk. I painted it... then I distressed it using sand paper and more paint. So there you have it.
