Tired of cleaning posts?
if you think it’s redundant to read them – try having to DO them all. lol
I needed a reward for my clean grills and windows – time to refinish something!
This nightstand looks like it was hand built – as in not a retail piece.
There was still a pencil line underneath the varnish showing someone’s measuring marks.
Me thinks another “JK” original?
I used a semi solid stain made by Cabot – the colour is called Driftwood Gray.
It was interesting… although it’s called a “stain” you don’t treat it in exactly the same way.
This one is treated as more of a paint than a stain in that you paint it on, DON’T wipe it off, but instead sand with 600 grit between coats so that the wood grain will show through.
The more coats you put on, the darker the colour.
This one has three coats of the grey on it – and no varnish.
The finish is glossy – as though it has a varnish already in it?
It takes a bit of getting used to, but this stain is water washable (which I love) and the colour assortment is ridonkulous!
Their in-store advertising photo shows a three-drawer dresser done in black stain, with one red, one orange and one yellow stained drawer (I may have to try that!)
It’s really eye-catching!
It’s a bit tough to tell in these photos, but in person you can still see the wood grain showing through.
Forgive my fluctuating between “grey” and “gray” – the British version of the word is “grey”, but the US version is with the “a” – Cabot is an American company, but my spell-check is English.
Have a great one!
