The stripping continues

This weekend I stripped another door.


Today I put another coat of polyurethane on the test door. It’s looking so cool!

Then I worked the rest of the night on the front bedroom. No pictures yet because darn it, after all that work it doesn’t look like I did much. But I kept heat gunning the paint off the window frames and baseboards, then I applied Citristrip to the front window frames to take off what was left of the paint and the excess varnish. It needs another round.

It feels like I’m getting nowhere right now, but I’m sure I’ll feel better in the morning. My arm’s just sore from all that scraping.

    I’m sure you’ll get lots of google hits with that title…hahaha. Last week I noticed that someone searched for “good strippers cheap” and ran across my automatic wire strippers post. My guess is they didn’t find what they were looking for.
