Besides the fun in inserting a maniacal laugh in my title, this weekend was a dud in the craft department! I got so excited about my pallet project I had in mind so I was crushed when it didn’t pan out right =(
Here we are pulling out nails and whatnot, preparing it for staining at 9 pm Friday night!
Saturday staining and sanding! <—loving that alliteration there, hehe
Isn’t it amazing what stain will do? I can’t even tell it’s a pallet. Note: after this picture, I did flip it over and stain everything else so there was not any natural wood color showing through.
Okay, this is where it all went wrong. After cutting out my design, my
cheap contact paper would NOT stick to the wood =(
Soooo, I am going to head over to the store and buy some contact paper for transfer paper because I am completely out now and I’m going to try WHITE contact paper too. Maybe it’s a bit thicker and I’ll be able to SEE it, lol
Open to any suggestions, of course =)
