Rustic Wood Container

Once again I was snooping around my mom's house, and I came across this old wooden container. It looked rather weather beaten, so I decided that I would clean it up, paint it, and give it some rustic appeal. I like the way it turned out, and the star embellishment really brought this forgotten piece of wood back to life. Cute, huh?

Supplies: wood container, acrylic paint, fine sand paper, polyurethane, foam brush, hot glue, and embellishment(optional).

Sand the container first. Wipe clean with damp rag. Apply paint with foam brush. Once dry, apply polyurethane( do this outside). Let dry about 1 hour. With fine sand paper work entire container gently. Along edges rub sand paper until it lighten to your liking. Wipe clean with damp rag again. Attach embellishment with hot glue gun. Pretty easy, but the painting is the fun part.
