Ah.. what happens if someone accidently turns on the stove with wood on top of it?

well….HOPEFULLY they’d notice themselves reaching across the massive block of wood on top of the stove first.

Nice addition’s. Did you use milk paint for the finish?

Thats really cool shabby chic work to hide the modern stuff.
How did you do the distressed paint?

Hey Amagineer and Cob – i actually did not do this. This series is all about creative woodworking (usually from other artists) to get the juices flowing for everyone.

however – a good way to do crackled paint (which I know this isnt crackled) is to spread some Elmors Glue over the surface, let it sit for like 2 minutes, and then paint over the glue. When it all dries, the paint will look like it is flaking off, like its really old!
