|Remember the eggs from last week? They hatched!
|I grabbed this paintbrush with the first can of stain and my dumb ass didn't consider that it was wider than the mouth of the stain can. Durrrrrrr.
|I rifled through DH's garage and came up with a better alternative.
|A brief moment of enjoying the color. I love it so much!
|It's a pretty thick stain -- more like a watered down paint. You can see the wood grain through it, but it's DARK.
|Trying to get it to dry enough to put away in the shed before dark.
|I don't ever wear appropriate protective gear and naturally ended up wearing quite a bit of the stain.
|Finishing drying in the shed.
|Had to drag out the big saw.
|Trimming around the French doors. Hard to photograph because the light coming in the doors always blows out all the photos I take that direction. Oh well.
|I was afraid the stain would clash horribly with the spray paint I used for some of the other accents, but it's really not bad. Go me!
|We had to rearrange the saddles again, for the 50th time. Haha.
|Sunday morning before we worked on the shed, he shaved off all his hair. The best thing is that now his phone's recognition software doesn't know who he is 😂
|I still think my preference would have been teal but it WAS nice to not have to stain it. Compromises?
