Where to start with this piece. My mother in law gave this to my husband and I when we got married...ages ago and it has sat in the basement...as a gem waiting to be discovered.
My husbands grandpa actually made this out of old barn wood! I didn't want to ruin the integrity of the piece so I lightly sanded it down to keep all the imperfections and texture. I then brushed stain on and rubbed it off IMMEDIATELY with a wet rag. The stain picked up all the imperfections as I had hoped.
I LOVE THIS PIECE!!!
