Back Bedroom Sprint

February 1, 2011

The picture above is not a piece of abstract art; it is actually what the previous owner considered to be “fixing” the closet door in the back bedroom at some point.  Right now it is also the only recent picture of the back bedroom I have around.  Our good friends Spence and Lindsay are coming down to visit us in a few weeks time and so we are going to try to refinish the entire back bedroom in record time.  We started Sunday by carefully removing the window trim to replace sash cords and removing the crown molding to be refinished and reinstalled.  Then we started the arduous task of sanding, and patching every surface in the room.  We also need to get all the hardware over to the brass shop for refinishing, and find a new set of door hardware for the bedroom door as it was replaced at some point in the past with a cheap replica.  If we can keep up the pace we have been working at over the last two days I think we will finish before they arrive!  More pictures and updates this week and next so stay tuned!

    Yes, if the crown molding isn’t refinished we are totally going to arrive and immediately begin judging you! And nothing but authentic brass hardware for us! 😛
