Today I stained bilbo's desk and chair express color pecan. I will later add a satin varnish. I am keeping my stain colors light like the movie. Pecan is as dark as I care to go. The other advantages to a lighter stain is a hobbit hole is less illuminated by its very nature of being built into a hillside. I also stained a couple of baskets the same color.
I'm a maker and a thinker. I live in a magical world inside my head. To some, I am an artist. I am surely creative. And my creations change as quickly as my mood - so you never know what you're going to get.
