The pattern of the wood grain shows through so beautifully.
Why did we even attempt wood burning the posts?
Honestly it wasn’t on my radar at all. Travis and I were headed to the treated wood area of our local Home Depot when Travis got the idea.
He asked, “Why don’t we get untreated wood and try to burn it?”
Thinking his idea sounded like an excuse to play with fire I rolled my eyes and said “Really? You want to burn the wood?”
“Yes, I think it could turn out cool.”
Then I remembered back to visiting my cousin’s house and seeing her little girls bunk bed, that her husband had made absolutely stunning by burning and distressing the wood.
“Okay,” I said, what’s the harm. We’re all about DIY, so let Travis take on this project!

Honestly the whole process was extremely easy! You’re literally working with fire though, so take caution and understand there is risk involved. (aka: if you burn yourself it’s your own fault.)
