Every year my team at work makes a wine themed gift basket for a silent auction to raise money for our company’s charity of choice United Way. My part is to make the box as nice and cheaply as possible. This year I used it as an excuse to try out a new finishing technique. At least new to me. I used a dark stain and then took a dry paint brush and lightly painted it to give it an aged look. I guess what is new is old.
