Reading Nook Staining and Painting
Some changes were made in the Reading Nook since I last shared.
One of them was the ceiling. The white was such a stark contrast to the red that I decided to paint it.
(Sorry … the pic is a bit blurry but it is the only one that I evidently took. )
The ceiling took 2 coats of paint.
I also decided that I wanted to stain the wood as it was feeling like a sauna to me.
I used my favorite stain … Jacobean!
I had to re-stain the upper part of the back, as the wood didn’t take it as well as the rest.
I painted on the stain and then left it longer before wiping it off.
I used Minwax Polycrylic in Satin to seal the stain and wood.
It dries FAST and a fan helped the process too.
I wanted to paint the shelves and top railing white to help them stand out …
I also had to paint the seat of the Reading Nook as I really made a mess on the first coat. LOL
Live and Learn!
Now to let it all dry before I do the detail work. I am hoping to have it done but I am stressing about all I have to do!
Not just with the Reading Nook but … baking, cooking, cleaning …
