We needed a new study desk. So I bought a West Elm Jay desk with hutch off Craigslist. It had marks due to regular wear and was a ‘chestnut’ color. So, I re-stained the Jay desk a reddish color – “Cabernet”. Now the whole place smells like wood stain and the desk looks awesome.
So, what did I learn from re-staining the desk?
What I learnt also was that I absolutely enjoy making things, creating things, beautifying things and don’t mind the learning curve, or the time or how dirty it can get. And I also learnt that the things I fear and dread are not really that bad once I get started.
