In Distress

I am having so much fun with this rough wood from the swing set hubster took apart.  I thank him each time I dig in the pile. I love the rough texture and how with a little paint, a little sanding (ok, sometimes a lot, the slivers are heck!), some wax or stain, the distressed finish turns out.
