Stain A Branch For Hanging Art





Small rustic touches in a tiny powder room make it special.

We have the tiniest powder room on the planet. So small that it’s difficult to photograph except from sitting on the you-know-what. In the mirror you can see this little project for hanging a lovely scarf…

I used one of my fav products, Wood Icing® White Furniture Glaze to whitewash a stick I cut that had fallen in our yard.

This glaze is so nice to use for lots of DIY reasons. It has an acrylic water base that cleans up with soap and water. It is durable for projects like mine, or it can be sealed with Wood Icing’s PolyAcrylic Sealers that come in Dull, Satin and Gloss.

I like how fast it dries and that I can water it down for a wash, like I did on my branch, or apply it full strength. There is also a Clear Glaze you can mix with it if you want to add open time on a large project.

Wood Icing White Furniture Lazing Color is perfect to grey out a branch for handing.

A quick jute wrap was all that was needed to hang this very light piece.

Whitewash a branch using Wood Icing Furniture Glaze Color, then wrap with jute to hang a scarf in tiny powder room.

Two cup hooks and a hammer made quick work of hanging. Knowing me, I will change out what’s hanging on this wall often, based on current treasures found.

You can see that I have a thing for “shopping” for tree branches in the yard.

Lustrous white walls are a lovely backdrop to simple boxwood wreaths and soft towels.

Ages ago, I wound some green raffia around old hardware to make this towel bar.

A broken branch from the yard, paired with junk drawer hardware and raffia make an interesting towel bar in a tiny powder room.
