#polycrylic time! #minwaxpolycrylic#minwax I have my hubby do this step. I can’t take the smell. He’s quicker and better at this phase than I. Poor guy worked worked 18 hours only slept for 5 and headed back for another 12 hours. He’s so good to me! He’s my number 1 fan. Couldn’t do all of this without him.
Furniture do over! I saw this antique buffet on Craigslist and had to have it. I’ve never seen such a unique piece before and when we picked it up I found out the old couple who were selling it received it as a wedding present over 30 years ago!! It’s super ornate and very well built and the thing weighs a ton!! I tried a new method and used faux glaze made by Behr paints in all of the carved crevasses and then used a paste finishing wax. I’m Super pleased with the way it turned out and I don’t doubt this thing will be in my family for another 30 years because I love it ❤️. #diyfurnituremakeover#minwax#fauxglaze#antiquebuffetmakeover#chalkpaint
I'm impatient waiting for Rob's help with the risers (still have to cut and nail them) so I decided to try out the gel stain on the railing on the top floor. This is one coat and I plan on doing at least one more but I'm really happy with it. The only problem is in areas I didn't sand completely the stain is not sticking very well. That makes me nervous for the posts at the base of the stairs because some of the nooks were problematic while sanding. #diy#staircaserenovation#railing#gelstain#minwax#minwaxgelstaininwalnut @minwaxcanada
