PAINT DECORATIVE LOGS
A basket of firewood in the living room is a sure sign of the season, but Courtney Sanchez at Crafts by Courtney wanted to give this classic display a chic update. Gather several good-looking logs and wrap each with a strip of painter’s tape several inches from one end. In a well-ventilated area, spray the taped-off area with two coats of metallic gold paint, letting each coat dry for about five minutes. Then, carefully peel off the tape. Arrange the painted logs in a metal or woven basket, and place your for-decoration-only accent anywhere that needs a cozy boost.
GO FOR VARIETY Choose logs in different lengths and widths that will display well together.
