In case you're wondering where I've been the last few days...
Remember when I said waaaay back last January that I needed to refinish my steps?
Then in September I gathered up the gumption to get started but eventually only ended up getting 4 steps completed before I could come up with enough excuses to put it off as long as possible.
Well, between feeling guilty and my wife's not-so-subtle but yet tastefully sarcastic hints ("Yes honey, I absolutely LOVE the first 4 steps of our stairway. THANK YOU for doing that! No, don't bother with the rest of them, this was all I ever wanted.") - I finally got around to working on them again.
So, after taking 2 vacation days this week, I was able to make some serious progress.
Here's the barrier I had to create to keep the dust from infesting the rest of the house.
And here's ol' Bubble Boy stripping the finish off of the last tread below the landing.
Now, of course, all I have to do is...
- one last round of final finishing sanding
- clean up the mess
- tape, primer and paint the kick plates and side molding
- poly the stair treads
No problem, they should be finished by lunch.
