Painting and Finishing
This weekend we painted and finished our cajones. Sean’s was constructed from furniture-grade mahogany veneer plywood, so this one would be finished with a natural finish. The girls wanted flowers, butterflies, and ladybugs. Nathan had his heart set on a monster. Since I’m entirely unable to draw any of these things well, we ran to the store and found some stencils that the kids could paint on their respective boxes. These worked much better than I’d expected – the kids were able to do it themselves with beautiful results!
The finished products
These are definitely family-room worthy pieces that we should be able to enjoy seeing and hearing for years to come. Great work, kids!
