I decided to use today as my Birthday as yesterday was somewhat of a bust.

Yesterday was my birthday. It was somewhat of a bust, so I have decided to make today my birthday celebration instead.

On Wednesday I grouted this mirror. It took me ever so long! Now it is all wrapped up, allowing the grout to "cure".

Today I will try staining the frame. I don't have any definate plans for this staining other than I will make it dark brown. This mirror is so old that the velvet ribbon just becomes bare when I attempted to remove it. The ribbon is fused to this frame! So I am going to stain over this tattered ribbon. Hopefully the ribbon won't interact with the stain and produce something ugley.

Experiments in chemistry!

Also I am rethinking my beer cap coasters. I have a tube of Lexel to use, but I think I will take the coasters and the Lexel to the garage as the Lexel has such a strong smell. I don't want my house reeking of some chemical for hours. Also, I believe I have a box of beer caps out in the garage. It is supposed to be in the upper 30's today so it seems like a good day for garage rummaging.

I hope today was a better day. I have done that before - changing a special day to the weekend when we might have a better chance to celebrate. Good luck with your garage rummaging and beer cap project. It was in the 60's here.
