DIY: project stain
This thrift store frame was wonderful in the sense that it was detailed in joining two pieces of interlocking wood. I know I usually give my frames a paint makeover but I also do appreciate beautiful aged wood. It is hands down the most beautiful material ever. So this time I wanted to change the stain of the two interlocking pieces so that the connection is visible to everyone else without an architecture degree.
I did a overall wash on the entire frame first. And then I had to go over and over on the piece I wanted to darken. It took me a day to finish everything. I love how it has small chips and dents on the wood depicting time and strength of the material.
