ah, nuts!

It's official;

Nuts for a dark walnut stain,
that is.

when we couldn't find a stain locally
that will work with the tung oil finish we want to use,
we set about making our own.

Have we reached a new level of crazy??

(I'll let ya know....)


  1. That's awesome to make your own walnut stain!?! hmmmm... I don't think I'll tell the hubster about this one, or he might want to try it too ; )

  2. Oh my gosh I am showing my husband this; we curse all the black walnuts in our yard from the neighbours' humongous trees, as well as their toxicity to most plants, but I do love the black walnut stain, but MAKING OUR OWN??!! Too cool!! Will be watching to see how you the post after this one, love that floor in your bathroom!

  3. Um, this is the coolest thing I've ever seen. My mom's new home as an *enormous* black walnut tree, and I just might have to try this! I can't wait to see how everything turns out <3


You're leaving me a comment?? Oh goody! I love comments :-)
