Day 1 Progress

Because it was supposed to be hot today, I started stripping the paint last night at 11PM. I only worked on it a couple hours before Jeff shuffled me off to bed because I was making too much noise with the windows open. LOL

Luckily the temperature was not as high as forecast today and we were able to put in another few hours (between us). Unfortunately, my hands have gone soft during my nearly 3-year break from paint stripping and I have massive blisters on my thumb. Oh well. I'll keep at it though, because this is what I'm obsessed with at the moment. I am so determined to finish this project as soon as I can (before I get distracted by some other damn video game).
The pictures are mostly for our own benefit, because paint stripping is one of those awful projects where when you look at it all you see is what you have left to do. It's so hard to feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of a day's work. Usually you don't feel good about the project until it is done.
