Work table top

Hello Y'all,

Well I stained my work table top today and I'm very pleased with the results.  I chose a classic Walnut stain and it made the top just the right shade of dark wood.

This picture was taken about an hour after I stained.  I should have taken the top outside, but I did not want the cat walking on it.  I did not think you could smell the fumes, but I was wrong.  The smell is not that bad, it's a good thing I did not get the stain with the poly in it, my Mom and I would have both been high!

All put back and ready to create.

Oh yeah one more thing before I close.  I won the giveaway at JennP1751's blog.  Jenn was celebrating her 200th sale in her Etsy shop and so she had a giveaway.  The giveaway is a pair of her feather earrings (really cute) and one of her rings.  Looking forward to receiving my prize and also Jenn is a fellow Alabamian, cool huh!  Go check out her blog she does some pretty neat feather earrings.  I also want to thank Hope of Crafty Hope blog, she posted about the giveaway on her blog you can visit Hope's blog here she is very talented and she too is a fellow Alabamian.

Happy beading Y'all


  1. Hi Therese!

  2. Hi Therese,

    Your table looks great!

    Thanks for the post on my blog. If you're interested in making paper beads they are really fun. I make mine using a tool I got from Fire Mt. Gems and I coat them in good old Mod Podge. I use the hard coat kind it makes them firm and gives them a nice shine.

    Have a great day!

  3. Therese,
