Have you ever spent the night in the guest room of your home? A few weeks ago I wasn’t feeling well. I didn’t want to wake Honey Bee so I made my way in the dark to our guest room. I eventually fell asleep…the bed is so comfortable. When I awoke, I realized I had never slept in this room and was now looking at it through different eyes.
I had previously thought that this room was cute and comfortable. It was definitely comfortable but I now thought it was not cute at all. How could have I missed this key element?
Around this time Jennifer and I were offered an opportunity to try a new product, Weatherwood Stains. Their product #1 Reclamation is a reactive stain that creates different weathered colors based on raw wood species. You can make wood look aged without having to wait 100 years.
I became very excited – this was like a science project 🙂 Keeping my guest room in mind, I knew exactly what we could create…DIY Curtain Rods.
I already had everything I needed for this project. The problem was digging it up from my garage. I also needed Jennifer onboard to help me, which she readily agreed to. I remembered that awhile back I had purchased two wooden feet for furniture and thought that they would be great chunky statements for the end of the rods. And by rods I mean a 48 inch broom handle that I would cut in half. I told you it was DIY 🙂
We gathered the necessary materials and got to work:
- Weatherwood #1 Reclamation Stain
- Broom handle
- Wooden rod ends
- 80 grit sanding block
- Rod holders
We were fortunate to work with this amazing group of bloggers. Please visit each of them and see the projects that they created using Weatherwood Stain!
