Well I finally got around to using that largest piece of wood on the bottom. I decided to paint it a cream color but put the paint on kind of "rough" since I wanted some of the dark wood to show through.
After I got it painted, I sanded down the edges a bit.
I ordered some vinyl from Jill over at utahvinyl.com. I added my HARVEST vinyl first.
I had her make an "inlay" as well to put on top of my "harvest" that says "Let us give thanks." I added that next.
Then I got out my trusty can of stain, which my mom bought years ago for me.
I added some to the whole thing and then wiped it off with a paper towel. See how the edges are dark now.
Now it's already to be displayed for Thanksgiving. I'll wait until November to put this up but I just loved how it turned out. Here's a picture with the flash:
And another without, but you get the idea.
I got that cute crow in Virginia one year while visiting my parents. They were so cute, I bought two.
It's never too early to get some Thanksgiving projects done right?
