Throwin' Things Together Family Style

I get no greater pleasure than working on a project with family.

This little bench is something my brother threw together and then came to big Sis to get help with the finish. I decided to experiment with a technique I have seen in Blogville. We sprayed it red, let it dry (with a heat gun.....impatient) then rubbed it in spots with a candle then painted over it with black. When the black was dry (heat gun again) I rubbed the wax spots with steel wool after heating them with the heat gun.....Ka-Blam! That is the easiest and quickest way to get a worn look without sanding marks. What do ya think???

I had a hard time getting my lighting were taken at night.
Cohorts in crime....I mean co-project-workers
