I was given a beautiful solid wood side-board from my mom when she sold her house. I loved everything about it, everything except the big water stain in the top corner!

And the rest was in perfect condition. And I don’t have much experience was re-staining and my previous attempts had not been hugely successful.So I decided to try my best to remove the stain…

Some of you may have noticed the large wardrobe in the corner of the room when you looked at the light project I did..... It started off a hunk of brown wood as below.
Using Annie Sloane's chalk paint (the colour is Florence)I brought it in line with other pieces I've been doing for this room. I love how it has turned out. But you may be starting to know me. And I like surprises and lots of Magic......

Just a couple of weeks ago I fixed this old bench using wood putty and Dark Walnut stain. Of the three benches my grandparents made that I have this one had taken the biggest beating. But, with just a little elbow grease I had her looking almost like new again. After that I made a no-sew cushion for it complete with tufting and buttons! Check out the post all about it here.Stencil Revolution makes really neat and high quality stencils and they were kind enough to offer me two! My first post using one of their stencils was my Mother’s Day sign using their Greatest Mom in all the Land stencil. The other one I chose was this Country Fresh Produce stencil.
