DIY Paddle Towel Hook Home Decor - Paint unfinished

Step one: Paint the unfinished wood paddle with the Barnwood Tint Paint. This is a dark brown color that provides deep coverage with just one application. Let the paint dry for several hours.

Step two: Brush the Barnwood Wax over the brown paint. Use a soft cloth to quickly wipe back the lighter finish. Continue doing this until you’ve achieved the desired effect. You can make the faded effect as intense or as minimal as you like. The wooden paddle now has a faux sun bleached appearance.
