Got my shiplap wall going up. Working at super speed to get it all done 😂
NOTES: -Put it up over drywall as opposed to just the studs (wasn't about to take my drywall down 😑), and used longer nails to nail directly into the stud -Used a stud finder to locate all the studs and mapped that out on the wall prior so I made sure each piece had two nails per stud -Used spacers in between each shiplap at big ends to get an even space
So this has been fun!!! I think it just needs some side bars to the ends of it and a thin coat of poly and it'll be done!!! It's not perfect. I can see several places where I didn't get stuff screwed in just right. Blemishes in the wood that seem to stand out really bad now that I have it put together. Little flaws here and there. But, that's okay. Those flaws are really just character. And that's kinda how God makes us. We have our scars and our bruises, but it's really just our parts of our character and experiences that He uses to help us grow and not hold on so tight to this imperfect and fallen world.
Finished weathering my shiplap. Can't wait to start putting these up for my new feature wall and blog space. 😍
-Found it easiest to apply the #varathane weathered wood accelerator with a sponge brush. -Tried a bristle brush and rag as well but found this the cleanest. -Used the rag at the very end to blend in any spots that I missed or were thicker.
I was huge fan of this dining table but not a big fan of the price tag! Swipe to see the version I just built for a fraction of the cost! Even if you had to buy all of the tools to build this table you would still come in WAY under the Pottery Barn price tag! Plans for this table will be coming to the blog!

Take a look at how beautiful the #varathane weathered accelerator looks on pine. This is just one coat. It takes 30-60 min to dry and didn't have a strong smell like that of a stain.
Love it! What do you think?
Working on a shiplap feature wall (as mentioned in my stories). Using #varathane weathered wood accelerator for the first time. Did some experimenting last night and can't wait to see it full sized. Stay tuned!

I really enjoy when people tell me the story behind their orders. Recently, I have done this #familynumbersign for a sweet grandmother who was so excited to find out that she is having her 8th grandchild, a single mom who cherishes her 4 kids, and a dog owner who is proud of his 2 golden retrievers. Every sign has a story and I love that I get to help them share it.
This stunning desk was inspired by the restoration hardware look. Painted in layers of Cobblestone, Antique White, Dark Roast and a custom made glaze, all the colors blend beautifully together for a weathered feel. Sealed in a polycrylic for protection and durability. The top and center drawer have been sanded down and stained in Jacobean and then sealed in several coats of gloss polyurethane. All new antiqued bronze cup pulls really pull the new look together! 7 spacious, dovetailed drawers of varying sizes for ample storage space. Measurements are 30 1/2 H X 44 W X 20 1/4 D. $315. Pick up only Adamstown or Narvon. Cross posted.
Can't wait to see what this little guy can do! I've been silently watching @furniturebypete and @sarassignsfurniture and decided it's got to be worth the time and money if it's half as good as they say it is. Y'all have any advice for me on tips or techniques?
Staining my new project a stain that I'm super obsessed with right now! It's called #Briarsmoke by #Varathane and @rustoleumusa. I'm making a 34" wall clock for my dining room and I can't wait for the finished product! Definitely getting a better grasp of my @ryobipowertools #jigsaw !
Playing around with some weathered wood accelerator. These were just some throw away pieces and I didn't sand them. The weathered look came a lot faster than expected. Also my first time lapse video my phone fell right after I left the shop...30 mins later I walk in like 🤦🏼♂️. Has anyone else used this stuff before? I feel like I can get the same look with just a classic gray stain, but it is cool to see it change colors.
