A Vintage Crate + [stuff]

How about some stain?

After drooling over the staircase makeover at Centsational Girl and Rhoda's at Southern Hospitality, I decided to do mine. Well I sorta back peddled on the stairs and started with something smaller- the fireplace mantle. I used the Min Wax Gel Stain- LOVE this stuff people-


love, love. After some serious sanding, 2 coats of stain, and 2 coats of polycrylic gloss -I am quite pleased. Now onto painting those ghastly walls- leaning towards this Pottery Barn color Berber White
