Like i told you in the previous post, this is the new project of my mum and me.
We are going to work on it ones a week.
This is how we bought them at the fair.
Already nice rounded corners.
Very smooth wood, so it needs no sanding to begin.
First layer of stain is on.
We don't have to be neat, because the floor and the wallpaper is coming over it.
Little coffee braek.
I almost dipped my paintbrush in the coffee.
We used waterbased stain.
In the color mahonie.
My mother is happy with the color, i am thinking of doing another layer so the color is a little bit deeper.
After our little coffee braek the stain is already a bit dry. ( on the tin it says dry after 4 ours, but we have no patiens) We begin with the floor.
For the floor we used ice cream sticks,
I had left over from other projects.
Most sticks i bought years ago at a hobby-shop, a couple are from ice scream.
I know: i keep to much stuff, but now they come in handy!
First we looked if we had enough for two floors.
Then we cut of the rounded parts with a large scissor.
The colors are different, but that only ads caracter.
We still have to sand and stain them but that's for next week.
Left : my mothers corner
She ended there with her floor.
Right: my floor, i want to go around the corner.
To be continued next week.
