The second task was to use painters plastic to wrap up all our vents, wall fixtures and doorways. This took awhile, but is very necessary. I covered all the walls in the art room because I didn't want that dust all over my flat-finish navy walls. Don't ever choose ultra flat paint for dark walls, everything shows!
Doesn't the capiz light look...uh...interesting with the plastic? ha
And I got the frosted door I've always wanted, at least for a day...
The speed of their sanding was the only reason I approved a beer break. Har har. Thanks, Frank and JR!
It worked to our advantage that most of the poly was already rubbed off the floors. The orbital sanding was quick, this photo was about 15 minutes into the sanding of this room, I almost didn't make it up there in time to snap a 'during' picture!
At the end of the day, it was looking like this:
And despite all our prep, our stairs still looked like this!
The stain saga is up next!
