Love this! I did a bunch of shibori style dying this summer, it is so addictive!

Cadet Heat says:

Fantastic use of color. Makes a huge difference compared to the plain wood look.

Sarah Eline Fuchs says:

I love your shirt, where can I purchase it?

Jonathan Curtis says:

Mary! I just inherited two original Mid Century chairs! The shape is gorgeous, but they definitely need to be reupholstered and the wood needs refinishing! I’m gonna tweet you a photo soon, tell me what to doooo! 🙂

Shelbi Snell says:

I didn’t know you could buy colored stain. That’s magical!

You’re so great!

Valeria Sanchez says:

This was a perfect way to end my Sunday (day off)! Thank you, Mary Elizabeth, for the constant beautiful work. I’m also liking the dusty, vintage, less saturated film color through the video clips of you speaking. 🙂

Bekki L says:

Omg, this looks fantastic! I love how it turned out, especially with the cushions on top. <3 I also adore your cute outfit and hoped that you will not get it stained, too. I could stand it, if you ruin your beautiful clothing. 😉

For me, I would love to have an indigo colored bench, with a similar red cushion as you used on top.

I love it!

Rhiannon Jansen says:

Love this! Love the idea of having it be used as a table when you sit on the floor for when you are playing games or things. I now need a bench in my room. I already know where to put it.

Jaclynn De La Garza says:

I’ve used minwax for 3 different projects, and I do like it, but I find it’s very paint like rather than a stain. I used a weathered grey one and the sun bleached one. They weren’t exactly the look I was going for but I did end up liking them.

TanBrunetteTV says:

Beautiful <3
