Time to stain!
We got busy this afternoon after church…we wanted to get a coat of stain on the chair/table before the day was done.
Rob picked out the stain…
He made a smart choice!  This Golden Pecan was perfect!
I think it looks very beachy and the cushions we chose are going to look great!
The stain is very light and bright and I’m extremely pleased with how it looks so far.  Tomorrow we’re going to try to get at least one coat of polyurethane on it.  Rob says we’ll probably need 2 or 3 coats since the piece will be on our back patio outside in the elements.  I can’t wait until we’re finished!  This project is quickly becoming one of my favorites of all we’ve done!
On a side note… I broke one of my main rules when training for a half marathon… I wore my marathon shoes everywhere, not just while I’m training!  Therefore, I wore holes in the heels of my ASICS.  I asked a couple of my running-fanatic friends what they liked to run in and they suggested another style of ASICS.  I went out last night and bought these…
They are the ASICS Gel Kayano 20.  They were not cheap, but they are incredibly comfortable and came highly recommended.  I’m anxious to start breaking them in…the race is 3 weeks from today!
Until next time…
Happy Blogging!
