My brother in law, Allen, built another awesome piece of furniture that I got to stain this week!! Allie and I are all about neutrals & navy - so when she told me that she wanted this guy stained purple - I was surprised! I've never painted a piece of furniture purple before so I was really excited to get started!
I used DecoArt's Color Stains in a mixture of Navy & Real Red.
Here's how it looked before:
How cool is that? Allen built it custom to fit with their low IKEA loveseat.
I'll only show a sneak peek of the stain job for today, since it wasn't fully dry enough for photos. Plus, everybody knows you can only show a finished product if it's covered in fresh flowers/ staged in a mildly unrealistic way considering who will be getting their hands on it...right?! Hint hint...
So next week I'll show the full piece in all it's glory, most likely with a fresh cup of coffee, flowers and it's namesake - a laptop!
On second thought, probably Allie's ipad, since my laptop looked like it cuddles up nightly with Gimli's ax.
