Oooh, sounds enticing. I'm putting it on my 'keeping-my-eyes-peeled-for-this'-list!Anyway, yes. I especially keep an eye peeled for Southern Right wine, which makes a donation for right whale conservation for each bottle sold. Win-win!
Same here. On both counts.I forgot that Shakey asked. Duh. Makes me wonder what else I've forgotten!
Please do if you can find the time. I'd love to see them.In that case, maybe I'll get a photograph of my painted acorns. They're a low-skill project, which for me was just right--and also revealed two colors that had gotten thick and clumpy and needed throwing out.
I took off all hinges and locks, rubbed the boxes down with a moist cloth and once dry, started sanding.Frog, tell me more about how you stained your lovely boxes. I have a few wood boxes that are nice, but they might be nicer in a deeper wood tone. I'm mostly interested in how you prepared the wood for the stain, I guess. Was there an existing finish you had to strip off, and if so, how did you do it?
