Get Creative with Driftwood Art


If like me you enjoy picking up driftwood along a beach or shoreline, then you’ll also enjoy this project. I began by gently cleaning the piece with a brass bristle brush (which is softer than a steel brush), then vacuuming off the dirt and any insects that came along for the ride.

To prevent the wood from crumbling, I brushed on a thin coat of Minwax® Polycrylic® Protective Finish, which also brought out the grain of the driftwood.

With a thin wire stretched across the back, I could then hang my new piece of nature’s artwork on the wall in my office, a pleasant reminder of my day at the beach.

Until next time,

Thanks for stopping by!
