Finding Motivation

I have found one of the problems with paint stripping is it's a lot like cleaning—you can only see what still needs to be done. Since it's hard to see from day to day what progress you've made, it can get pretty discouraging. That's why I try to take lots of pictures so I can see the progress. It helps me stay motivated.

I just keep plugging away at cleaning the woodwork but I'm now at the dental tool stage and it is slow. This part frankly sucks, but I just keep reminding myself that this project will be so worth it in the end.

Today is my birthday, so Jeff and I are taking the afternoon off. We're off to go play the rest of the day.


  1. I feel selfish saying this, but your blog helps me stay inspired and motivated! You guys have done so much work and such nice work!

  2. Thank you Leslie. I'm flagging this summer, but I am trying to tough it out. I so want these projects done this year.
