I took a half day vacation to get some work done around the house. It was a beautiful afternoon - sunny and cool - perfect for sanding doors. Can I even express in words how much I hate to sand? I put on my big girl pants and got on with it. I first had to take the doors down and remove the old painted over brass hinges. I had to chisel the hinge notches just a bit so the new hinges would fit. I used my pretty sawhorses to lay the doors out for sanding.
The one door needed some repair - wood filler
and there was a bit of veneer that needed glued back together
After wiping the doors down, I took them into the garage and was able to get two coats of paint on one door face and the sides. I will turn them around tonight and get at least one coat of paint on them.
I was almost 6 p.m. by the time I got the paint brush cleaned, but I needed to do one more job despite how tired I was. I needed to cut down the old growth on the ornamental grass. The plants were starting to grow. The neighbor's has cut theirs down a couple of weeks ago and they were looking good with the new growth.
I got them cut down and took three wheelbarrows of material to the recycling pile, but every step was a struggle. I was so tired at this point.
I am still tired this morning. In fact I am so tired I forgot to put my Fitbit on. So now I have to figure out how to capture all my steps from my walk this morning.
I did get one seam sewn on the R.E.M. quilt. That is all I could manage to do.
