About the Author
Hi, I'm Angela, the blogger and creator of Angela Marie Made, where I write about DIY projects and home decor. I love sharing DIY furniture build tutorials and home makeovers on my blog. A huge part of finishing those pieces is deciding what color stain, paint, or special finish to use as it can totally transform the final look and style of a piece! One of my favorite looks for finishes is a weathered wood finish because it adds beautiful character and shows off the grain of the wood. I created this DIY resource to help make the weathered wood finishing process easier and quicker for others!
When I'm not creating DIY ideas or working on blog projects, I love spending time with my husband and golden pup, spending time outdoors, baking, traveling, and just relaxing!
