In my spare time I have been turning this palette wood from this:
I'm working on a little project and distressing this wood is pretty time consuming but I am pretty happy with the results so far! I got a little 6 piece wood carving set this weekend and just started carving out grooves and holes and adding gashes. After that was done I sanded all the edges to give it a soft aged look and then rubbed some dark stain in to it. The pieces still need a second coat but that will have to wait until next time. I will post more pictures as the project progresses or when it is complete. Just wanted to show you a sneak peak!
Also, this is what Michael has been working on. We were busy woodworkers yesterday. This is his dream finally coming true. A veggie garden for our backyard! He made the box this weekend and I just took this picture of him putting in this special soil he ordered today.
Our garden still needs a lot of love but we have a plan in place. Hopefully we can complete it before the summer begins. I will post some good before and afters when it is done! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
