Staining the Floors

April 5, 2009

Until the floors are finised, Ashley and I have made a bed on the family roon floor.  While I napped, Ashley stole a pic of my man-cleavage, too bad.

Pops brushed the stain on, and I wiped it off, it’s mans work.

Because Ashley and I enjoy sleeping in the family room so much, we decided to take another week and re-finish our hardwod floors.

Originally we were to lazy to refinsh so we just painted.  We had to lock those pesky splinter down so they wouldn’t jab into our socks in the middle of the night.

Be careful Eddie.

The use of Goof Off was an intoxicating failure.  We got hot while the floors just turned to goop and were no easier to scrape up.

I got my Dad to help us.  At first he was displeased with the project, then after some Goof Off fumes, he couldn’t be happier.

Potato found himself a home in some paint tray liners,  he’s a handsome boy.  Today we finish srapping, and then sand the bo-shit out of the splintery floors.

During one of the many trips to Home Depot I saw the magical bag of ice melt that just drove me wild.

Bath Tub Debacle

March 25, 2009

For the past week Ashley and I have been working on remodeling our bathroom.  We installed wains-coating, new moulding, and a fancy-pants sink.

After many attempts on random objects in the basement, Ashley perfected the art of the stencil to spruce up our cheap-ass cabinets.

Last night I began to refinish the bath tub.

It’s basically just paint-on glaze.  Give it 2 coats and presto!

The paint is so think that the can did not last for two coats.  I hurried out to Home Depot to get more only to find that they are currently out.

If you can’t apply the second coat within 4 hours of the first, you have to wait 72 hours before you can start again.

Extremely disappointing.  Now to clean up.
