Faux finishes are a lot of fun to paint and can be simulated with just a few simple steps. This project features four unique looks, and we’ll show you how to create each one. We used 8" paper-mache letters purchased from Pat Catan’s for this tutorial. The letters H, O, M and E each have a different technique used.
Spring is in the air and it’s time to start getting out the outdoor furniture and decorations. If they’re made of wood, you’ll want to be sure they’re protected from the elements before you put them out for the summer. Wood left bare will gray from the sun, begin cracking and change shape; twisting, cupping or warping as moisture moves in and out of the wood. Some woods handle the elements better than others but ultimately they will all succumb.
