I received this little sugar and creamer set from West Elm, and I really liked it, except for the bamboo tray and spoon. Or rather, did like those as well, just not in my house. I have an old teak Danish modern dining table made by Dux, which I love. This looks too… contemporary.
So I picked up a little can of stain and a cheap foam brush. I sanded down the spoon with a fine grit sandpaper and wiped it down with a damp cloth. (I didn’t even bother to sand the tray.)
And, with about 5 minutes’ worth of work total, I had this.
Now I’ll be able to sleep at night.
