Stripping paint that is.
But before I talk about that, thank you for all the great Hobby Lobby comments! I should send them to the company. "Reviews from very important bloggers."
Sounds like HL is gigantic and cheap, worth a second chance but not a special trip, better than Michael's and AC Moore but not as good as Joann's for fabric.
Not gonna lie - I still can't wait to check it out :)
So back to the doors.
On Saturday I took one of the three exterior doors that we found in the attic and propped it up on some saw horses in the yard.
Then I got out the palm sander, attached a really coarse grit sand paper and buzzed over the whole thing.
And it looked the same.
The sandpaper did almost nothing....
So at my parents' suggestion, I picked up some of this.
According to the directions, you just paint it on, wait, and then strip it off with a plastic spatula (putty knife). First it says you have to put it in a metal container.
I used an old Starbucks hot cocoa tin. Looked like a giant can of lip balm.
Then I brushed it over the whole door, waited 30 minutes and tried to scrape it off.
Hmmmm..... not the satisfying glops of sludge I was hoping for. The bottle said wait 30 minutes to 24 hours (that's not a big gap...) so I'm going to leave it over night. I'm pretty sure there are at least three coats of paint that I need to get through so....more on this tomorrow.
Anyone ever strip paint before? Any advice is appreciated!
In the meantime. What smells?
More like who smells.
SOMEone likes to roll in the fresh mulch that's all over the neighborhood. Enter rosemary scented Buddy Wash and a bright new pink collar.
Ahhhh. So fresh and so clean clean.
