Today's agenda? Staining the toddler farmhouse bed for Ethan's sock monkey bedroom!
This is just the first coat. Bombay Mahogany (polyshades miniwax) appears red with camera flash so I turned my flash off. Initially it is more of a brownish red color. After about 4 or so more coats with light sanding, we hope to achieve the almost blackish red it should be.
And even if it remains more red? That's okay It will go along perfectly with the sock monkey theme.
Parts of me wanted to keep it natural, but we could never sand the dresser down enough to match it, so they will both be bombay mahogany. And that's fine by me :)
