Faux Barn wood Centerpiece



I chose to distress the wood on this box to make it look like barn wood. By using a hammer, nails, screws, screwdrivers, a sander, and two different colors of stain, I was able to achieve this look. By changing out the contents, I am able to use this box year round!

  • This centerpiece is the perfect project for any season! We love the way the stain turned out as well, great job!

  • Love it!  Where did you find the handles on sides?  I am in process of building boxes for some succulents and I am trying to find small handles.
