Both very nice, but I prefer a rough matte finish linen in darker shades. 18th Century Sea Glass which I can no longer find. I remember using a light spray of reddish brown on this piece which is NOT what you do with hand dyed, but it was more green than my other piece. I wanted to tone it down and can't tell you if it was a dye or walnut solution. So very close to the original Rook that I love.
To tell the truth, I am still not enjoying this.
The Liberty boxes will go on sale Sunday May 1.
April is ending. Holy crap. I vowed to have the house projects finished or under contract by spring and as usual, procrastination, indecisiveness, and lack of competent craftsmen have contributed to missing that goal.
Have a beautiful spring weekend!
