Black (Wood) & White Sideboard & Tour of the Dome, Florence

The famous Florence Duomo is frescoed with these EPIC images from Dante’s Inferno and it’s the largest fresco in the world! ⛪️ Definitely take a minute to zoom in, because the detail is unreal!! πŸ˜ The bottom shows all the demons and satan in hell. πŸ”₯ You can see angels proclaiming that Christ is on the judgement seat. πŸ‘‘ Around the dome’s center the apostles look like they’re about to fall off the painted ledge! πŸ˜± INCREDIBLE!



    1.] WOOD: Here's how you can get the look, first make sure you begin with sanded white oak. 80 grit sandpaper will do the best job.

    2.] STAIN: Use a wide paint brush to apply Weatherwood's Reclamation stain. The stain is reactive, so apply a heavy coat and allow the wood to absorb it. As the wood dries, it will turn colors.
    You'll see what I mean in the above timelapse. We stained both sides of the door, even though this is going to be used as a headboard. 

    3.] HIGHLIGHT: Once the wood is dry it will be dark, apply Weatherwood WHITE Maintenance Oil to highlight the wood grain. Just wipe or brush on and wipe off. Apply per the video above or the bottle's directions.
