Weathered Wood Tutorial and Gifts

I saw this tutorial on a blog this week... I had to try it only I skipped a step, couldn't find the tutorial when I wanted it... So here is my version!

MDF wood
Painted brown
Poured melted wax and rub it in {I didn't scrape} oops
Painted white and sanded off...

I love how they turned out!


Now for my Americana Swap gifts from Em can you believe her and I have NEVER been swap partners before this??
She made me this AWESOME rag garland!
Look at these YUMMY colors...
Look at these GREAT bracelets from her!

A bucket my bracelets were in, and birdie candle holder!
Thanks Em!

Weathered wood turned out cute! I may try this. You and Em may not have ever officially swapped...but unofficially-all the time! {any chance that MOMents will start again? I asked Em too...I think I'm having withdrawls!}

Wow! You have been busy while I have been away. The letters turned out really well, and I think the painted floor is a great idea. Can't wait to see it finished, and great rag garland from Em. Jackie
