HOW TO REMOVE A WATER STAIN FROM YOUR WOOD FURNITURE IN 5 MINUTES!

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! It had been caused by a cold drink on a hot day. And the stain had been there for as long as I can remember.I didn’t want to paint it because I really loved the chestnut finish. 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…

particleboard bed frame makeover

PARTICLEBOARD BED-FRAME MAKEOVER

After a couple of months sleeping on a mattress on the floor, I was desperate for a bed-frame! I was limited by budget, as well as distance. I finally found a frame that met both these criteria…but is was particleboard!! And didn’t match my other bedroom furniture. But I really liked the headboard (and the idea of finally sleeping in a big girl bed again) so after some deliberation – I decided why not?! So I brought it home and spent the next 4 days working on it…and this is how it went.
