I treated myself to some new slippers this past weekend!
My last pair were closed toed and made my feet sweat so I'll definitely stick with the flip flop kind.
Aren't they awesome!
I bought the supplies to stain my kitchen and bathroom cabinets 2 months ago...and then I got a little nervous since I've never stained anything before.
A couple of weeks ago I went to visit my friend Marci--we've been BFF's since the 4th grade. She had just stained some of her cabinets.
They looked amazing.
She told me how easy it was.
I dug down deep and found the courage to get mine done!
I cleaned the cabinets with water and Murphy's soap.
Although I had planned to use brushes I ended up applying the stain with a dry towel--worked great. I applied one generous coat.
I bought a tiny trial size to make sure I liked the look of the stain--it's a light amber color.
I liked it enough to use on the cabinets in my other bathroom.
I think I may go with something darker for the ones in the kitchen.
They're still a little sticky so they'll need another couple of days to dry.
D says Tantalizing odors from freshly baked bread, cinnamon rolls, gingerbread, or beef stew as they permeate your home's atmosphere lend to its homeyness and enchantment.
There is quite a permeating odor in my home after staining those cabinets...not so sure it's homey or enchanting, rather it's making everyone a bit loopy.
