I finally got round to doing something about this guest bed. Goodness, I say it a lot don't I? Something I've been meaning to do for a long time, that is. It is true though. And would it surprise you to know we have had (until recently I hasten to add) a bare light bulb or two in our home for a wee bit on the long side too? No, I thought not!
You know, I find if these things aren't done straight away they get forgotten about and it's only when guests come to stay that my eyes instantly home in on imperfections. Such is life. Well, mine anyway! But my excuse is that I would rather wait till just the right thing comes along instead of putting in any old thing as a stop gap. After all, if I do that, it'll end up staying!
I do love the shape of this bateau lit but it had been in its raw pine state for longer than it really deserved. So I got myself some Auro 160 eco woodstain in grey and applied a couple of coats. I've already used this product in white for both my sewing trestle table and the Ikea step stool and it worked really well. I love that the grain shows through the sheer colour and because there are no nasty ingredients, it's perfect for a bed. And for me, too, since there's no odious smell as I paint away.
Yay, another tick on that long to-do list!
Have a lovely week x
