Since the move I have reorganized my work space and discovered tools that I have used to have fun with and put away for one reason or another. Not any more. I am trying hard to use them again. I might not be a PRO at using them and I might churn out a few duds(not that I think this is one). So what? Who cares? I know I don’t. I like to share my projects. The good the bad and the … you made that and not a 6 year old?
This project in particular is one that was done with a tool that is not all that old but the technique sure is. I remember doing it in girl scouts and summer camp. My house smelled interesting when I finished. I was also craving marshmellows. The smokey aroma filled the kitchen. I wondered if the smoke alarm would go off. It did not. Thank goodness.
I free handed the pattern on the box in pencil. I wanted a rustic middle eastern look. I then went back with the wood burning tool. Colored it in with wood markers and then went back to touch it up. Once it was finished it I sealed it with Krylon Crystal Clear. Not quite sure what I am going to do with the box. It matches my little sisters new place. I might save it for her Christmas present. She is doing her place Hooka – esque. Not hooker but hooka as in hooka pipe. LOL
Am I the only one who puts up their good and not so good stuff? Just curious?
