a home tour: before & after

a HUGE thanks to the best mom ever who took time out of her insanely hectic & busy schedule (you know, the one that keeps 5 kids & a husband's world turning, runs two successful businesses, is constantly creating gorgeous works of art to sell in her own shop... in her shops, all at the same time maintaining sanity & wonderful life full of the good stuff.) that one. thanks to her making time to spend with me re-finishing my furniture so that our home decor feels complete! i am so so happy about this! look at what we did!
project one:
$7 home depot crates + $8 minwax: dark walnut stain from home depot
... diy entertainment shelves
i absolutely LOVE how they turned out! you can polycrylic these if you like a more finished look, but i liked them looking more natural in our house!

this is an OUTSIDE project. seriously. you will fry your brain if you try using the stain indoors.

our coffee table + the same $8 minwax: dark walnut stain from home depot
...new love for our coffee table!
i appreciate natural wood as much as the next person, but for my personal style in our home, the walnut stain is more up my alley. it's beautiful & really warms up the room!
