So after I finished my work this morning, we got back to work on the craftsman door we scored at Old House Depot. We scraped. And we scraped. And we scraped. Finally, the paint was mostly gone and we could move on to the next step.
Ben will be sanding in his sleep tonight.
And since all the paint finally came off and it was, in fact, beautiful wood beneath all the muck, we’re gonna get to stain it after all!
We’ve decided on a pecan stain with a gloss finish. This is what it will hopefully look like after we finish:
Before too long, I’ll actually post some photos of the house this door will be adorning. I just don’t want to jinx anything at this point.
More on the re-do tomorrow!
