we used them to create our own sides for our arbor over the Summer instead of purchasing pre made panels.
mixed with a lot of that weathered, worn look – it was a little hard to place new boards on top of it
and make it look right.
as in- maybe a few months?
or you can do your best to recreate the look.
sun and rain just a little bit of faux weathering.
I’m a little impatient.
as best as you can.
I actually used something completely different for that painted project I shared a sneak peek at last week. The dark wax was making me crazy. But for this- it did an excellent job.
With a little extra work.
rub it with a clean cloth to really rub the wax further into the wood
and then I lightly sanded to smooth the edges of the streaks and create a more uniform ‘grungy’ look.
I like the spotty grungy areas sometimes- makes me feel like I can’t really do damage by spilling coffee on it 😉
In the photo below- you can see how some areas took the wax more than others
It might drive some crazy- but I am good with it. I want it to look like it was weathered
and worn like the rest of the piece and the rest of it certainly had areas that were darker
and more ‘aged’ than others.
