Knock Off Pottery Barn Advent Calendar

It all started when I got Pottery Barn's catalog in the mail...
I sat down to eat some lunch and started flipping through the beautiful pages when I saw this:
LOVE. So cute, right?! Well not for $149. Although it is on sale now, but still. Not worth it for a piece of wood with clothespins on it. So DIY'd I did :)
I had the perfect piece of wood left over from a headboard I made for a friend.
I started out by staining it with some Dark Walnut and then using some white wash until I got the affect that I liked. Then I sealed it up with some flat topcoat.

    It is so beautiful! I see 5ft long, how thick would be best? That's what confuses me with the DIYs.
