Driftwood Gray Coffee Table Rehab



Hey, lovely friends. Can I vent for a second? I just want to say, I miss hearing from ya'll. We've been together for years and years, and I know life gets busy, it has gotten to be for me. But I just miss hearing from you guys. Sure, I say the wrong name of something or have a typo, I hear from my reader-friends. But I miss knowing how you are, what's happening in your lives and and what you are working on! The death of comments creates a one way relationship, and I for one, am sad about it. I hope things move back in the opposite directions. Rant over.

Barnwood-Looking Cedar Beams


Don't you think it's funny how your eyes are attracted to what you want? Whether it's something menial like a possession or item, or something deeper like a spouse or child. I seem to find myself paying attention to different things nowadays. I wonder if this means a mark in time or a fork in the road? I will let you know if, what I have my eye on, I achieve! 

This week's project is a simple makeover with a whole lot of room appeal. When you need to stain a wood that begins really red or orange, it's very difficult to cover that original wood tone. Here's how to do it right! Ready?
