Sorry I haven't written a thing in what feels like months to me. We finished sandy the buffet! We have begun the staining process. Rather than changing the color of the wood we decided to keep the exterior of the buffet the same color as the rest of the wood- which is an antique walnut. We did a light cherry wood stain the we aren't thrilled with but it adds more depth to the buffet and highlights the glass shelving area. It still looks better than having the entire buffet the same color. The old stain was darker on the interior and you caould barely see what we had in there without opening the glass doors.
Other than that I raked 18 garbage back of leaves from the yard with a few left to go. We are also pulling some type of weed bush with HUGE roots. They seem pretty hard to get rid of but I've gotten some good advice about cutting them about 6 inches underground. I'll post yard photos on the next blog (which will be soon!)
Here are the beginning photos of the stain. Once we are finished- we'll have 3 coats of top coat to protect the buffet with a medium sheen.
