The Finished Product
Here it is, mounted and ready to go. The final tally: $50 worth of materials and a light weekend day (about 5 hours) of work. Plus, we get to play darts in the house without holes in the wall!
Update: To make it a little more “professional,” we added a dart holder on the wall beside the board. It’s just a 1″ square piece of oak with holes drilled in the top for darts and two large screws mounting it to the wall. If you want to be really fancy, you can cut a few pieces of molding trim to surround it.
