I had and idea, I was not sure it wold work, but hey, my motto is give it a try and if it is a fail then you can always paint it.
I thought, what if I sanded down the wood and put on a darker stain? My problem is my sander broke, and I wasn't sure I could get down far enough with a simple piece of sand paper. Also, I refused to take the mirror out of the wall.
Well, long story short. I did sand it, and added Jacobean stain and I then Easy- Easy Lemon-Peasie, all done. And I even like the result.
And if you are still wondering, Yes, I am still ignoring the big hole in the wall.
