Made by Felricia & Curt

A few weeks ago when I debuted our remade coral desk, my friend Felricia sent me these pictures of a desk her and her hubbie, Curt, found at a thrift store and stripped and stained.  I was/am so very impressed because the littlest thought of stripping and staining any piece of wood bigger than a wooden nickel gets me all upset and in a tizzy…a.k.a. overwhelmed.  But, seeing their pictures just might have me begging to try it someday very far away… 



Didn’t they do an awesome job?!  And isn’t that blue chair just the perfect pop of color to top the whole thing off?  Me thinks "yep”.

What about you guys?  Stained anything lately?  Or maybe you’re into the paint can again?  That’s my mode ‘o change!  :)

P.S.  My motivation found it’s way back from Florida and I’ve been a busy bee working on a couple of awesome diy projects!  Think herb seeds, the oven, some spray paint, and a little Anthropologie.  So exciting right?!  ;)

P.P.S.  Have you entered our very first giveaway?  You should because I’m telling you, it’s probably the easiest giveaway you’ll ever have entered and you might win a crafting tool set I’m tempted to keep!  GO, GO, GO!


  1. Wow they did a beautiful job! I just started staining stuff and I kind of love it! Stripping the varnish first is no fun though. Right now I am working on a pair of school desks I got at the thrift store.

  2. Looks great! I finally finished stripping, staining, and sealing our antique mantle which was painted over (about a gazillion times). Because I couldn't use the stripping chems while pregnant (and I didn't have much time while not pregnant), it took me Hope to get a post up soon. :)
