One important element to getting a DIY furniture piece to looking fabulous is to use the right finish. You can spend countless hours creating a woodworking masterpiece, only to have the final outcome look shoddy, if you don’t know how to work a finish. Not long ago, I created a few pieces that I gave a nice driftwood color. This particular piece is from my DIY Beach Wall Art. The finish came out so nice that I was wishing that instead of wall art, I had built something with more pizazz. I included these instructions with the wall art, but decided to pull them out and show you how to create weathered gray finishes. After all, I think this deserves its own post.
