It seems like my wood staining skills still need a lot of work. This exquisitely horrendous hand rubbed finish, exudes oodles of that rustic Je Ne Sais Quoi, which I will refer to as being, "very charming". :)

I was hoping for a more uniform color. I used a sponge applicator then wiped off the excess. But the stain came off in patches, you can actually see the brush strokes...it looks really awful in bright lighting.

I guess I should've used a "wood conditioner" first? Had sanded it down pretty evenly too. Oh well, I'll do that next time I refinish it. If people ask I'll say it's a unique hand rubbed finish to obtain a desired "antique look". lol.
