Does anyone else find it funny that the poor treadmill is always surrounded by remodeling debris? We worked this room over good with some soapy water and then a nice coat of primer. It looks much better, however there were MANY obstacles I had to overcome before primer could even go up on the walls. Observe the highlights:
French Doors - blind hardware removed, holes caulked, everything sanded down, removable parts boiled and spray painted, hinges and knob spray-painted in place, doors primed with BIN (which took hours because of all the divided lites):
Casement windows - Blind hardware removed, holes caulked, storm glass removed, entire window scraped and sanded, handles spray painted in place, everything primed with BIN:
Louvered doors to the room - hinges stripped (couldn't get them off without using some paint stripper), removed and boiled, hinges spray painted, doors sanded, awaiting primer:
Amazing what a little bath can do to remove that paint!
I haven't even thought about touching the yellowy closet doors yet. Seriously, there is so much woodwork in this room I'm crying inside just thinking about all the work I still have to do. Needless to say, I am disappointed that it took so long just to get everything primed, and it's not all done yet. Here is where we're at today:
