Santa is worried for me.
Look at his face.
No pressure here … but it is 9 days until Christmas!
No worries (HA)
I sanded the old wood that I had (remember my stock pile?), to match the new wood.
Fortunately, for me … this step went pretty fast!
Next step, staining the wood. I used “Golden Oak”
A fan was necessary to quickly dry and keep the odor away.
*Handy hint: A pair of gloves are a must to keep your hands stain free.
I trimmed the seat area using molding, an adhesive, and finishing nails.
I will fill the corners with a stainable wood putty to give it a more finished look later.
Remember I told you I had a reason for choosing this paint color?
“Olivia” the Pig is why I chose the paint color! I wanted to match her outfit
*Handy hint: Don’t rely on your memory to choose a paint color. Either, bring in an object to match or bring home paint samples.
Olivia has faith that I will get this done by Christmas Eve … see? she is smiling!
(There will be more frequent posts from me until Christmas as I finish this project.)
Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s off to work I go …
