Faux Barn Wood Painting Tutorial

Faux Barn Wood Painting Tutorial
Okay folks, are you ready for the Faux Barn Wood Painting tutorial!?... I ask if you're ready, because there are about a trillion photos. ha! Even though this process is SO easy, and relatively quick... I wanted to make sure that I didn't miss anything important that you may need to know, when attempting this barn wood look on your own. At this point, if you're not into the whole "barn wood look", then you can just stain it, or paint it whatever color you want! But I love to mix different styles together, especially when they're close to each other, to add visual interest, so I went all barn-wood-crazy on this tabletops be-hind! I'm admitting right now, I am NOT a furniture refinisher/painter. I tell you this because there is NOTHING technical about how I came up with this finish. I've broken this tutorial down into 4 main steps, so it's easier to follow. * Sand your wood surface well * Wipe it down to remove any dust or debris * Do not wipe any off. REMEMBER: You CANNOT mess this up!!! Related:  Wood WorkingInterior Designbricolage

Weekend Project: Make a Backsplash from Pebbles, Shells or Leftover Hardware My favorite DIY projects leave lots of room for improvisation and creativity—and this one is spacious. Former Natural Home & Garden art director Susan Wasinger taught me this trick for using found objects—pebbles, seashells, buttons, sea glass, pennies and even galvanized steel hardware—to liven up a bathroom backsplash. (Here’s what you can do with all those leftover steel washers that rattle around in the bottom of the toolbox.) If you’ve never set tile before, you can learn about tools, materials, and techniques at or check out the video below. Glass globs (also called glass flats, nuggets, pebbles, gems, or half-marbles) are available in a dazzling array of colors and finishes from frosty tumbled textures to pearly iridescent. Find them at craft stores, florist shops, or online at Glass nuggets can look like a sea of bubbles. When the rounded side faces out, the nuggets appear to be bubbling right out of the wall.

How to Antique Paper I saw Martha "antique" paper a few years ago, and although I don’t remember her technique, I do remember that it was complicated. I played around with the general idea, though, and came up with an easy way to get the same aged look. What You'll Need A piece of paper you want to age. (I used regular 24lb laser paper. Of course, print your poem, passage of writing, and etc. to the page before you attempt to antique it.)1/4 cup of hot, black coffee. How To Do It 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. What To Do With It Frame your antiqued poem or passage for a great-looking piece of cheap art; or use it to make your sweetie a heart-felt Valentine. Speaking of paper... have you seen this fun oak leaf garland tutorial? Tagged : paper, antiqued, aged, DIY

diy pallet decor Thanks sooo much for the supportive response to my son’s when will this room be done still unfinished room! It’s by no means a difficult project to take on, but I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s the quickest—unless you have no kids and no job, and a husband with no kids and no job. Believe me when I say the internet (Pinterest, anyone?) provided lots of inspiration for this wall. However, when I saw this one…it. was. on. {source} ~Disclaimer~ I know some of you are suspect about the whole pallet-turned-furniture/decor issue. Onto the tutorial… First things first. The #1 question I had (that I could NOT get people to answer me about) is where to get them. I was only picky about two things. 1. The second most important question I had? In all seriousness, that was the way to go. We tried to keep track of how many pallets we used, but it became impossible. Once the pieces were removed, I laid them out on a work table to scrub down with a brush and sand, sand, sand.

Small Attic Loft Apartment In Prague The design of this modern loft conversion located in Prague, Czech Republic uses natural materials such as stone, brick and wood to enhance the flat and angular surfaces. Designed by architect Dalibor Hlavacek, the two-storey attic loft makes good use of limited floor space. The living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom are on the lower floor.

boys bedroom Okey Dokey. So we left off with a pile of wood. So now what? Paint the wall. I knew there would be a lot of imperfections in the wood, and there might be some gaps here and there. Alrighty! I hope I can explain this part right. Oddly enough, we used a level for the first few layers, but we didn’t use it for the rest of the wall. The only obstacle really? But…it’s in my son’s room, upstairs, on the opposite side of his bed. I took a couple of close-ups so you could see the imperfections in it. And a couple of final thoughts… I’ve had some questions about precautions I took with this wood. Basically, I’m not a pallet expert, and I can’t tell you what to do.

This Beautiful Table Actually Starts To Glow As The Sun Goes Down A piece of furniture can really change the dynamic of a room. Whether it's meant to be a conversation piece, a practical addition, or a combination of the two, the right furnishing can go a long way in making your home special. A piece of furniture that could definitely make any room or dinner party more exciting is this DIY glow-in-the-dark table. The table was made and designed by Mike Warren, a DIY-er and columnist for Dollar Store Crafts. It starts out with Pecky cypress wood. After cutting the board to the proper specifications, the next step was to begin sanding down the wood to give it a smooth feel. He then used a mixture of resin and photoluminescent powder to fill in the holes in the wood. As you can see, the cracks then give off an incredible glow. Here's how the powder glows when in total darkness. After finishing the table with some more resin, sanding, and polyurethane finish, it was finally done. The finished product. Source:

Design, Architecture, Interiors and industrial design at the Middle East and North Africa The Bedroom Cupboard – IKEA Hack (Part 1) | The Shabby Side of Chic To be honest this has been somewhat of a roller coaster of a project with a complete redesign and at least two cock-ups on my part right in the middle of building it. That said despite it taking way longer than expected we’re both really pleased with the results so it’s been worth it. As I’ve mentioned in a couple of earlier posts we’re been having a bit of a switch around in our apartment and this project is part of that. As with many of the things I build, or renovate, the inspiration for this came form a picture my wife tore out of an interior design magazine. The original wasn’t in a bedroom but she really liked the shape of it with open shelve’s either side and a central cupboard which we could used to store shoes. The problem is as you can see it just didn’t work at all. The new plan was to just use the three pax units but on the bottom of the two at the side to use the two 50×70 doors that we’d had on the Faktum kitchen unit that had been sitting on top.
