Restoration Hardware Salvaged Table Hack & The Spanish Steps

The Spanish Steps! 135 steps connect two large piazzas, at the top and bottom of the stairs. They’re also the site of famous movies like Roman Holiday, The Man Called UNCLE & The Talented Mr Ripley. The square is literally packed with people and street performers.

There's my sweet hubby in all his cuteness! The cream-colored building behind him and to the right is the memorial home for Famous English poet, John Keats and his friend Byron Shelley. 

Over the years my obsession with Restoration Hardware has not lessoned. But now the CEO of the company has a Weatherwood Stains kitchen! Can you even can believe that! Isn't that amazing? I guess even he loves the easy way we can achieve these colors. You, too, can get the look of the Restoration Hardware Salvage Table using our safe reactive stains. 



1] SAND: To achieve this look, start with a raw wood surface.
The wood must be sanded, you can have it sent through a large sanding machine at the mill or you can sand it really well with a hand sander. You should start with 80 grit and then 120 grit. (You can do a finish sand at the end, at 220 or above.)

2] STAIN: Applying the Restoration stain is like a piece of cake, read "even easier than typical stains." 

Using a large brush and drench the wood with stain. (See above video, also shown on oak.) Let the wood air dry for 60 minutes.

3.] SEAL: If your project is on a high traffic or water area, you will want to let the OIL cure for 48 hours, then seal overtop with 2-3 coats of Weatherwood Varnish, allowing 30 minutes between coats.

The texture on this oak just makes the color POP, don't you think? This stain will turn most wood species this shade. Don't forget readers can save 10% with code: WELCOME10. I hope to see you at the party tomorrow, it has been growing and growing thanks to you all!
