Some things will never change.

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. ;)
