"Is It Stain Yet???"
I took about a quarter of a roll of steel wool and stuffed it down into the bottle. Closed the cap. shook it to make sure that the steel wool was under the liquid. That's all there was to it.
Tessie showed up three minutes and asked, "It it stain yet?". It takes a few days, depending on how dark you want it to be.
She tends to be just a tiny bit impatient....That's her style.
I got out the shingles and did three more rows on the Tudor Wallhouse.
That was enough of that. Those tiny shingles, tweezers and icky glue are only fun for just so long. I was into the second hour when I quit.
Then I heard from the roof, "Let's go look at the stain!" By the way. after I took the photo, I unscrewed the cap and took it outside. Pressure builds up in the bottle. Walter was not happy with me when it spilled on the back porch....Can you imagine what it would do to a rug?
My next and last project for the day was working on the tiny table some more. I decided that the best way to fill in the hole was to call attention to it.
I cut a piece of mat board the same size as the hole. Using liquid Sculpey as glue, I used slices of a bunch of cains to cover the top.
Then to add insult to injury, I covered the porcelain knob on the drawer also.
You will have to enlarge the photo by poking to see what it looks like.
The last step was to apply a couple of coats of Future Acrylic floor wax.
I still have to do more patching and refinishing on the wood. but I think that I am going to like it when it's done.
I hear Tessie yelling from the kitchen, "Is it stain yet?". I had better go peel her off of the window and get back to work....Now it's the no fun part. Icky vacuuming.
See you tomorrow.
