Day #8 - 12 Days of Christmas DIY Crafts - Christmas Card Ball Ornaments
Today's Christmas DIY Craft takes me back. Way back. You see, my Grandma used to make these type of Ball Ornaments when I was a kid.

We just completed a charming dresser for a client this week. I thought this would be a good opportunity to show you the difference between a Light Antiquing Wax treatment and a Dark Antiquing Wax treatment. I don't have a "Before" picture of the dresser.
