I have an old fat pine mantle that came from my gran's old home place. It's heavy as sin and practically petrified. I've moved it 1000 times, it seems. I want to paint it with chalk
paint and distress to the point of seeing wood grain....maybe more of a pickling effect. I plan to mount it on exterior wall under cover of overhang, them place my old coal grate in front of it, creating an outdoor fire site. I don't know anything about this waxing process. Want to know what kind and how much wax to use, and how to use it.
Everything was made on site from rough sawn red oak including all the trim the over all unit is 23 ft long and 17.5 ft to the top of the cathedral ceiling also has a doorway in it that leads to a powder room.
We have a magnolia tree that was planted by my Grandmother in 1918 when her home was built.. Years of neglect caused the area underneath the tree to become barren. The dirt was
impacted, hard and full of roots. This needed serious help. My friend Rob was the labor part of our team. I dreamed up the plans and helped with the planting. We now love to use our side entry. Our courtyard is a big hit with our friends and family
