    I have stained two pieces in the last year, both of them dressers. I have to say, I like the staining better, especially if the wood is really pretty once you sand it. And it seems to be more forgiving. I love your transformation.

    That looks wonderful! I've always been intimidated by stain too, but you made it look easy!

    It's so pretty! It does have great grain. Thanks for the inspiration. I've been a little hesitant about using stain.

    Such a pretty little stand! I just discovered staining too and it is SO FUN! I love everything I've done so far. Now if I could just find the perfect little typewriter stand…

    Ah, I love it. The stand and the dark stain. Your office desk is lovely! So nice! I'm jealous. đŸ˜‰
