Bring on the Stain
Jan 26, 2012
Today's makeovers feature the often overlooked and ignored cousin of Paint – Stain. It's not Stain's fault, he really is a great guy. He's just a little more subtle and subdued than that loudmouth Paint. If you get a chance to spend some quality time with Stain, I think you'll really come to appreciate his good qualities. He's classy and refined. He has a certain glow about him and always seems to bring out the best in others. So let's tip our hats to Stain, and to these stunning redos that he made possible.
I lovity love this dresser from Jill at Junky Vagabond. It's both masculine and elegant! It's masclegant! It's elemanly! I'll work on it ...
And I also love this desk from art student Emily. She needed an upgrade from her flimsy drafting table and decided to refinish this relic to take its place. I love how the stain brought out it's character, which is a nice way of saying 'flaws' ... but I'm kind of digging those flaws. It looks weathered and worn, but also loved. Our ol' pal Stain took it from a wreck to a WOW!
