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.
