Bar Staining

The other thing that happened this week was the staining of the bar.  It’s kind of funny how staining works.  We picked a stain that we thought would match the cabinet color.  We errored on the side of lighter and less red.  As it turned out, the stain doesn’t match the cabinets but ties in very nicely with the grape carved wood which is much better.  Remember my “It’s the Small Things.”  Well, this is one of the small things but it has made such a difference.  But let me tell you alittle about the process.  It took 3-1/2 hours to tape, fill nail holes and sand the filler and it only took an hour or so to stain.  What did we learn?  There is wood filler that takes stain, yeah!!!!.  Always, have a nail set with you when you do cabinet staining (sorry about the cut, Darolyn).  And lastly trust your judgement on stain colors.  We still have a coat of stain left to go, but here are before and afters in the meantime.  Doesn’t the blue accent tape go nicely?
