so there was this bubble....

While I was doing some prep work for a bigger project I noticed some paint on the door jamb was bubbling.  I had a razor blade near by.  Naturally, this happened....


It then logically follows that this came next...



Bad prep work is a beautiful thing.  Granted it does nothing to help me with stripping the ornate moldings and details, but it's a start, and I'm forever indebted to the wonders of shellac.

  1. We call this the Hangnail Principle. A little bit of picking at a hangnail, and pretty soon you have that baby peeled back clear to your elbow. It's the same with a little spot on anything in an old house.

    1. Oh so it has a name? That's good to know! It's been my new hobby while watching tv in the evenings.
