Roll up, roll up, the winner of the big giveaway is about to be announced!
Don't be impatient because before we get to the big news, I just have to say how much I have appreciated all of the swell hints that you have left! I have loved reading them and will definitely be putting lots of them into practice.
The lucky winner has been picked through a random generator and will soon be unleashing her inner 1950's housewife. I am particularly pleased with this winner because of the brilliant tip she left.
I have a gorgeous vintage G Plan sideboard in my house. I absolutely love this piece of furniture as much as anyone can love an inanimate object that is! Part of my love for this hunk of wood is probably the fact that it isn't being used as a sideboard but instead houses our craft supplies. One cabinet belongs to the Peanut and the other to me.
Now, I do try and respect beautiful things and this sideboard came to me in immaculate condition after being around for a pervious 50 years so I was absolutely horrified and frankly embarrassed that it wasn't long before we messed it up. Someone placed a broken leaking pen on the top of it which unfortunately sat there for several days. Once discovered it was too late and the wood had sucked up the ink and no amount of scrubbing with any number of cleaners was going to remedy the situation.
When our winner left a hint about using hairspray to remove ink from fabric I wondered if maybe this could translate to wood. Hey, there wasn't anything to loose, the stain wasn't budging as it was. So, out came the hairspray and it was like a freakin' miracle. I know this is a little like extolling the virtues of the latest laundry soap and all but this moment of stain removal did change my life! The minute the hairspray was applied the ink began to lift and the stain diminished-hooray! After two subsequent applications, the stain is but a mere shadow of itself.
So, JEN I am pleased to be sending you your prize and my sideboard and I are forever grateful to you and your hint! Congrats!
