Step one: take some steel wool and put in a jar and cover with vinegar. Let it sit at least 24 hours, the longer the better. (I expected the vinegar mixture to turn black or something but it didn't.) after 24 hours Step two: make a strong cup of tea. I used Chai. brush the tea on the wood and let dry. Step three: brush on the vinegar mixture.
Burning bowl ceremony - let go of the old that no longer serves to make way for the new as you welcome back the sun. Write what you no longer want in your life on a piece of paper. Burn it, blow, fling, or paour the ashes in a lake, stream or into the wind off and away from your property as you say be gone and let it go from your thoughts.
I love finding great furniture out by the curb waiting for someone to come by and give it a new home. Even better then saving a perfectly good item from spending eternity in a landfill is finding a piece of furniture that can be re-purposed into something unique. In total, this project cost us less than $150, with the inclusion of a few plumbing connections and a tube of caulk. The result: a one-of-a-kind custom vanity that adds charm and elegance to our renovated half bath.
What an awesome idea! If you or someone you know is handy, I think this would be fairly easy to make. If you could buy an old vintage iron piece for the top, great. If not, look for something you could use at Home Goods!
