Knock Off Pottery Barn Advent Calendar

It all started when I got Pottery Barn's catalog in the mail...

I had the perfect piece of wood left over from a headboard I made for a friend.
I started out by staining it with some Dark Walnut and then using some white wash until I got the affect that I liked. Then I sealed it up with some flat topcoat.
