Are you a wood purist? Probably not. I think I scared them off a long time ago.
But just because I post a plethora of painted pretties doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the simple beauty of the restrained and restained. Here are a couple of my recent favorites:
First one up from Lisa who finished this $40 Craiglist desk with Minwax Dark Walnut stain and new hardware for her son’s big-boy room. Such a classy, classic look!
And here is a table that Sarah scooped up when she saw it at a thriftstore for $6.50! She was afraid someone would snatch it up after she found it, so she took a random receipt out of her purse and wrote SOLD on the back and stuck it under the pricetag! Ha! I guess it’s every thifter for herself, but I’m going to do a double-take at anymore SOLD signs I see! (Or stock up on random receipts to keep in my purse). See it on her blog Sarah Elizabeth Design.
