Flower vase-end of blue period

Hi Everyone,
Well, it's several hours later and I went back down to the wood shop to take a look at the wood vase:

Ugly as a mud fence-the damn thing looks like a purple hand grenade.  This is most definitely not what I wanted to achieve. So I put it back on the lathe and sanded off the purple color. You can see the purple stain still in the wood grain:

Since the red oak has a pinkish color to begin with I decided to try staining it with the same wood stain I used on the lazy susan--it's now a puke color of deep pink:

I'm going to leave this overnight and see what it looks like tomorrow.
