Ok….maybe I won’t really rest because I have a few more things up my sleeve, but DANG people…this has been a productive week!
Remember my pretty Adirondack chairs?
Remember how seeing this sun faded chair and foot rest kept me from relaxing?
That I showed you how I am such a messy stainer and painter?
And what I use to clean up……
Apparently I felt the need to show you this with dirty dishes in my sink……
I am a pig.
Well, I finished them up yesterday but first I wanted to tell you an issue that came up in case you try this for yourself.
My stain stayed “tacky”.
I was freaking out.
So, I did what we all do and googled the problem.
Someone suggested washing the chair with warm soapy water to remove the excess stain.
I did and it worked.
But here is an important step that I used on the last three chairs.
When you stain……take an old tshirt or rag and wipe away excess stain.
Make sure you use your neighbors claw like, aged, stain covered hand for this shot.
My neighbor has good hands.
Those are mine : (
Please love me with my flaws.
But after learning that……I stained away…….
Is now this!
All together now!
For she’s a jolly good fellow….for she’s a jolly good fellow……or girllow….or female???
I was bragging and I know better!
I will have to do a sit in the chair test with white clothes soon.
I am so afraid someone is going to sit in the chair and stand up with a stained hiney.
I would die.
I would have to pretend I had hired someone to do the chairs and was disgusted with their workmanship.
That would be wrong wouldn’t it?
I would hope they don’t read the blog and know that I did them.
I need to invite someone over for a “white short” test.
Want to volunteer?
I will give you wine and cheese?
What a difference!
My pool furniture is all finished!
And my Adirondack chairs done this week as well?
If I had a womb I would think this was a “nesting” instinct.
I’m on a roll!
Think I should try the Roman Shades before this week is over?
I’M TOO SCARED!
The sewing machine scares me!
Hopefully tomorrow I am going to tell you about my cabana curtains and maybe then I will be so busy telling you about the cabana curtains that I can’t get to the Roman Shades….not because I’m scared but because I will be so busy….
Yeah….that’s why I won’t be able to tackle them.
If I do….you know you will all hear about it.
Let me know your thoughts on the makeover!
If you know of someone hurting….or they know of someone hurting….please share “Because it is true”. Remember to remind them to encourage my family in their time of grief and not direct the comments to only me. I hope to keep encouraging others and allow my family to see their pain minister to others. Thank you guys! Love, Me
