To Age or Not to Age


This morning I was sanding a few spots on the top part of my kitchen hutch project and decided to see what it would look like "aged". I really like how it looks with the corners and edges sanded lightly. It shows the red paint through. (You can click on the top photo for a larger image)



I used a 3M 180 grit foam sanding block to sand the edges and corners of my hutch. The foam sanding blocks work great because they bend around edges and corners nicely and they have sandpaper all around so they last a long time.



I will share the finished hutch later this week. I am also working on the how-to for my kitchen window treatment.
