I am almost certain that any day I’m going to get an error message from the internet, pinterest, facebook, etc……
“Sorry, the Internet <or Pinterest, Facebook, etc> is now full. The End.”
So I better get to what I set out to do…..and get blogging.
I’m in love with pallet art (http://pinterest.com/pin/410742428486406126/). I started collecting pallets intending to make a re-purposed masterpiece to put above our bed but all the pallets I found were all wrong. Doesn’t pinterest make everything look effortless? (If you’re wondering what the hype is about pinterest, I’ll save this topic for a future blog.)
I came upon a silver metal circle art wall hanging at Pier One and immediately imagined it painted barn red mounted on a pallet. I confess…we broke down and made our own pallet which I feel guilty about because I am a loyal re-purposer.
This week’s DIY project:
Instantly aged, weathered wood
This is a 2-layer technique using white paint and a dark stain.
1. Paint a light coat of white paint. Distress some areas by lightly sanding using a coarse grit sandpaper (such as 80).
2. Then wipe on dark stain (use an old tee-shirt to apply).
Voila! Instantly aged, weathered wood.
