Many of you have been kind enough to inquire about the pedestals mister man made for me shown in a copy of Atlanta Homes magazine. Unfortunately when it’s hot and humid you can’t stain and I work so time is usually limited for me. So it hasn’t left me a lot of opportunity to stain but mister man is home this week and the weather perfect so I was finally able to start staining and the results were not a good thing!
The paint store offered up a light gray and a dark gray and I want my pedestals to look just like the ones in the magazine DARK GRAY! So I bought a can of stain and rushed home ready to jump into my project with both feet. Unfortunately it didn’t give me the expected results I was hoping for.
I was able to get the first coat of stain on just as mister man and Dylan dog were coming up the drive after their hike. Lucky me to have such an astute husband because the first words out of his mouth were…”THEY’RE BLUE”! Ok we all know that gray can look a little blue sometimes but this gray wasn’t anywhere close to gray so back to the paint store.
I bought a can of black stain knowing it won’t be black black because you wipe the stain off after three minutes so I’m hoping for a charcoal gray. I’m off to try staining again and I’m hoping for better results…wish me luck!
