    Very pretty Caitlin. I did this years ago, but am so happy you brought it up again. I love faux finishes like this. I still have the "tools" (I did mine using a rubber triangle faux finish tool with different width "teeth"). Just need to find the time now.

    You make it look so easy. I hope mine looks as good when I attempt this. Thanks for sharing!

    You're welcome Caitlin. I have a very plain slide open box with non-existant grain that would work perfectly for this, but I'm not sure where it's stored at the moment.
