A Little Bit Tedious...
For the last several weeks I have been stripping paint from about one-third of the front porch floor. The one-third at the other end where the steps are, is already done. This is seriously tedious work, since there must be 8 or 9 coats of paint on the floor here. Many of them I put down since we bought the house in 1971. It finally got so bad, with cracking and peeling paint, that adding one more coat of paint wouldn't fix a thing. So I am using a really good paint stripper, but as good as it is, I have to apply it four different times, scraping after each application, in order to get all the paint off, and to get down to bare wood. Whew! It will be nice when it is done.
