I got this cabinet off of craigslist a little while back.
I went to Ikea and got some stain... but since I didn't read the label very well I thought it was paint. But alas it was stain.
As you can recall, my mom came to visit last week. I mentioned that I am still going to try to use the stain on the cabinet, just sand it down a little more.
Mom said, " I don't think you will be happy with that stain on the cabinet."
I said, "Nah, I will still try it, it will be fine."
Now fast forword a couple of days and 4 coats of stain later.
She was right.
I am not happy with the stain on the cabinet.
So all of you mother's out there who are saying over and over to your kids. "I am the mother and I know better."
Guess what... it doesn't change.
So mom please consider this my public acknowledgement to let everyone know... once again, you are right and I was wrong.
Even at 32 years of age, it is still hard to admit. ;)
