applying stain to baseboards
Sunday the weather was almost springy.
We pushed aside our mental plans for the day to tackle baseboards.
But first, a trip to the big box hardware place to make ugly faces at the lighting options.
I’m pretty sure we’re either going to find what we need for the dining room in smaller, local, boutique type joint, or we’re going all Myles of Style and making one out of a plunger, string, broken tea cups, hot glue and beads.

As for the baseboards, we learned the hard way that it is important to follow the directions and test a small area with the stain to ensure it works physically and emotionally.
Ours failed the latter test, being just enough off color from our floors to create tension.
Maybe we’ll paint them white and be done with it.
