Weathered Wood Decor — A tale of a successful DIY!

Since moving to WA, I have had the DELIGHTFUL pleasure of meeting a fun, beautiful, and incredibly welcoming family who has been friends of BME’s for years.  Even better, I LOVE the wife! She is FUNNY! She likes wine and Moscow Mules! SHE GETS ME!  Really, what more could you ask for in new friends?!

Last week, we finally had the chance to work on a do-it-yourself project she had been wanting to try for a while: a weathered wood sign/decor.  It took a lot of effort, some cajoling of the men, two Moscow Mules, several coats of paint and stain, and some sandpapering.  Unfortunately, I was only part of the cajoling and painting but we texted a bit about the final touches and I think she did AN AWESOME JOB! Snaps for HH! I’ve included pictures and brief descriptions below.

Again, I love it, especially against the gray color in their living room!!
