DIY Renovation Confession:
I don't think I've ever stained anything before.
So that explains why I was apprehensive to tackle staining our floor patches, thresholds & back doors. But in the spirit of "getting my mojo back" and crossing things off the Ready to Sell List, I forged ahead.
And I must say I did a pretty damn good job.
Check out the door before's here on the back porch wall before and after's post:
I didn't want to advertise it on the interwebs, but it has been just me and Mina solo in the house all week which is why I wanted to tackle this VERY STINKY staining and poly'ing project. It is much easier to get a infant out of the house while it is airing out than an infant AND a toddler.
Even just the two of us, I didn't end up being able to bring myself to paint the orange parlor ceiling. Partly because I'm lazy and partly because I just love it that much. Maybe someday. But in the meantime, I'm pretty happy having crossed two more things off the list!
