PAINT DEC­O­RA­TIVE LOGS

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside - DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY COURT­NEY SANCHEZ OF CRAFTSBYCOURTNEY.COM.

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.
