DIY Pegboard Marquee: Nursery “Sweet Dreams” Sign

It's the third edition of the HD Monthly Gift Challenge! In this challenge I am joining up with 12 other bloggers to come up with a creative gift for someone using a designated Home Depot item.
This month’s item was pegboard to be given to any recipient. I made a nursery gift for a friend who is having a baby soon. Pegboard is such an awesome DIY material and the ultimate tool for organizing any space. I really wanted to go beyond storage with this project, so here’s what I came up with!
And here she is, all lit up at night. I love the soft glow it gives off, perfect for a nursery!
Here’s what you need to make your own pegboard marquee sign:
2′ x 2′ piece of pegboard (My HD had 2’x4′ pieces and I had them cut it to the same length as is was wide, so that it was square)
2 strings of lights (100 lights each string)
2 6 foot long 1x3s
Tools: carpenter’s square, drill, Kreg Jig or wood glue and brad nailer
Glue gun
You will want to start with creating the layout of your letters on the back of the pegboard...

    This is a great idea for also writing Christmas messages.
