This is the wedding arch I made for my daughters wedding. It was the backdrop for the ceremony. I used good old yellow pine and “aged” the wood by beating it with bags of screws, randomness with various blunt objects and the an off and on with golden oak to fill the newly formed dings, dents and holes. I then used weathered grey as an accent. I put small amounts of the grey on a sponge pad and wiped it on a rag until it was almost dry and sort of dry rubbed it over the golden oak finish. Turned out pretty good. I used clevis pins to secure the wings hinges to the main panel to allow for ease of setting up and taking down.
