Live Edge in Driftwood Gray & Palazzo Vecchio Tower

This is the closest square to our AIrBNB - its Palazzo Vecchio and it houses Palazzo Vecchio. Which means, the old square has the old palace! This was the first museum we went to in Florence on Day 1. But heading to the top of the tower was one of the last things we had planned. The views of Florence were a 10 and we wanted for the perfect sunset to give it a try. 

Check out this oak live edge slab! The color is totally dreamy and it looks like it's straight out of a Restoration Hardware catalog! Most people don't stain live because they want to maintain the wood grain. But with reactive stains you can get beautiful color and hold 100% of the wood grain!



1.] SAND
Here's the labor portion. You want to use a hand sander and 80 grit sandpaper to make sure the wood is opened up, then sanded with 120 to smooth it a little. We did this before constructing the ladder, since that's much easier. 

Weatherwood released a new stain that can turn oak into a beautiful driftwood gray, called Light Oaking. This product can work on any wood, so it's less complicated than some of their other products.

Apply 2-3 coats of Weatherwood Varnish to protect!

That's all there is to it! Let me know if you have any questions and don't forget to save 10% with code: WELCOME10! I hope you'll be at the party tomorrow!
