Unexpectedly unplugged

Yesterday I found myself unexpectedly unplugged - in other words, without power! That, in turn, had me way behind for the day and I'm still trying to catch up.

We did get my new chairs picked up yesterday afternoon and now I have to decide how to finish them. I had planned on painting them all white (with ASCP) but hubby likes the wood and wants me to stain them so I'm thinking about staining them each a different color (which is how they were at the restaurant when I first saw them - grey, pink, yellow and green but they are custom colors for that restaurant so I couldn't have mine finished like that at the place they were built)

Since I don't have anything new to show today (I stitched a little last night, but not enough to rate a new pic) I went back to see what I had posted on Jan 13 in the past. These pictures are from my first Jan 13 post (2008 - I started my blog in 2007 but I didn't start it until July)

Christmas gifts from a friend

and I still have all of them! The little felt houses are still hanging in my office/sewing room and the doxie magnets are on the fridge.

Have you stained anything lately? It has been years since I used stain on anything.

Maybe my Monday I will have decided what to do with the chairs - who knows, I might have even started on them!

Have a great weekend!

Sounds like you have the same dilemna I have with my hubby on staining versus painting! I love using ASCP and have several pieces in the works.

I have never really done staining so I can't help you there. When I can't figure out exactly how to do something, I will look on YouTube to see if I can find a video tutorial. You might try that.
btw, I love your little felt houses. Those little babies took a bit of work! They're cute.
