I'm a huge fan of reclaimed wood items. I've been longing to make a DIY project for a while now but let's face it, I'm no carpenter! The short cut and cheat for me is to use acrylic paint to replicate the rustic look. Let's take a look at some steps to get the DIY reclaimed wood replica!
These are some items I started with.
Mix the base color you'd like. For this specific box, I chose ash baby blue.
Color the top coat. They can either be smooth or textured, up to you!
Here's the important step. Use tape to block out some areas and apply the darker pigments to add in the rustic look.
And Voila! They're done!
