So I gave it a good sand job...which I am really starting to not like sanding!! Then I stained it darker. Ugh, didn't turn out the way I wish it would have. Sorry, didn't take a pic of that either. Note to self, don't bother staining oak...just paint it. So after all that hard work, wanting to kick myself and take a big sledge hammer to the whole project, I walked away and started again another day. I decided to paint it all. I primed it and then painted the body of it white and the doors and shelves in a light grey paint that I already had.
I have already found my next project or should I say next 3 projects. My carport looks like a furniture store.
