Stylishly Stained

People be all up in my grill about why I only ever post painted wood makeovers.  Not really.  Most people are very  nice.  (Except the couple of people who emailed me over the weekend demanding that I take down the creepy doll pictures. Blerg. Guess what?  I ALREADY KNOW they are creepy!  It’s for Halloween!  Not everyone has the same taste.  I would certainly never go to your house and demand that you take down a picture I didn’t like.  The nerve…)  Ahem.  Moving on. 
So anyway,  here is some wood that has NOT been painted! Instead it was lovingly restored and restained to a beautiful rich walnut.  I’m in loves.  I would have totally just painted this white.  But I might have to venture down the wood-stain aisle sometime. Where is that again?  From Lindsay at Country Girl Home.

And hang on, there’s more!  She redid this old… any guesses?  Bread pan?  Broken lunchbox lid?  Actually, it’s an old ammo box, and now it’s super cute and adding some shajazz to her side table.  See it HERE.  Thanks Lindsay!

  2. Wasn’t the creepyness of the dolls kind of the point?? Anywhoo I love a richly stained piece of wood. It’s always classic

  3. You make me giggle.

  4. Stain scares the beejeezee out of me, but looking at that bench, I really should try it.

    Those dolls did a fantastic job of being creepy.
    Mission accomplished ; )

  5. Great bench stain.

  8. I am so glad you refused to take down the pic of those creepy dolls! They are “fabulous” and so is Glammafabulous, a.k.a. Kelley Smith. Shame on the Halloween Poo-Poo-ers! It’s all part of the fun!
