100 Layers of Paint on the Door...


I have to wonder how long it's taken to get to the bare wood.  Perhaps he's been working nuit et jour!

Reminds me of renovating my first house which I independently bought when I was 23. I was keen, energetic and cash challenged so I renovated the house myself ........with occasional help from a registered plumber and electrician. Stripping paint is not a pleasant job and, not only were the multiple layers of old paint being tenacious, they also contained led.
Warm wishes.

I would hate to be doing that job, he needs a blow torch to melt it off.
The last post with the gorgeous scarf, I walked those streets and I think took a photo of most shop windows. They were displayed in such style. Only Paris seems to have that talent.

Old, bare wood can be so beautiful! I wonder how he is going to refinish it.
