Video: Weathered/Antique paint look

76 days ago by JSB | 2 comments »

For those who are interested, here’s a video covering the process of my first attempt at a weathered/antique paint look. I believe some people call this a “shabby chic” look? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f37Do03w20A

New Yankee Blanket Chest #10: Painted and Finished

1181 days ago by HungryTermite | 8 comments »

I put 4 coats of flat dove white paint on the outside and 4 coats of satin wipe-on poly on the inside, except for the cedar on the bottom which is unfinished. I think the flat paint was a bad idea. It seems to get dirty if I even look at it funny. Some day I will probably use this chest as a test run for doing some stencil work so maybe that will cover up or blend in some of the dirt. Overall view: View with the lid open: View showing the cedar lining: I also used two of these ...

Cornhole Board Tutorial #3: Cutting and Installing the sides

497 days ago by StephenSchaad | 0 comments »

The next step is cutting and installing the sides of the frame. This method includes building the frame to the top instead of building a frame then adding the top. It makes for perfectly smooth sides. The link to these pictures is not working but here is a link to the entire gallery. This is a great way to see all the pictures in one place. Cornhole Tutorial Measure the length of your boards, some boards cut by big box stores aren’t perfectly 48” and therefore you may ne...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #319: Playing Hookie

1091 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Sometimes you just have to spend the day doing something silly. I woke up yesterday morning, fully intending to spend the day drawing the next design for the magazine and getting some work done and somehow by mid-morning, I decided that I wanted to “play” do something else for the day. I think the thought first occurred to me as I was putting some things away and looked into where I stored all of my acrylic paints. The bright colours were calling to me - “Come play w...

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #6: Shingled Out

2497 days ago by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

The paint was peeling, many shingles were missing, or severely damaged. The rafter tails were rotted. It was time to paint. We quickly removed the a.c. unit from the front of the house and the rat highway (Palm tree). We found a painter through a neighbor (Good fortune since he painted the house whose colors we liked). Did I mention the missing shingles? These are actually redwood barn shakes that come in 36” lengths. For my house’s design they are cut into 18̶...
