I love that, don’t you? To think of creating anything as getting a glimpse of the Divine? 😀
Kevin rubbed three coats of Miss Mustard Seed’s clear furniture wax on our new mantel beam, and wow has it really come to life!
He used an old t-shirt to wipe it on, and let each coat dry for a couple of hours before he applied the next coat. We noticed each coat dried quite a bit lighter than when it was first applied, but we were happy with how dark it was after three coats. It’s kind of a “play it by eye” sort of thing.
I get excited thinking about hanging a certain somebody’s Christmas stocking, and the return of seasonal “mantel mania” posts!
Something ordered and beautiful out of
nothing a centuries-old tree that’s still living out the secret of a seed.
So glad we get to be a part of it’s story. 🙂
