Quiz: Is This Fun?

I am stripping layers and layers of old paint off of the front porch floor.  Is this fun?  No.  I have probably painted this floor perhaps half a dozen times since we bought the house in 1971.  There are so many layers that the paint was cracked and looked terrible.  Stripping the floor was the only choice, but man, is it tedious work.  It takes at least 3 or 4 applications of stripper to get all the way down to the wood.  It will be fun to finally put the new paint on.

This definitely does NOT look like fun! I know it will look great when you are finished but I applaud your "Yankee" spirit for doing this tough job yourself!! betsey

You have always done things yourself and I applaud you. Look forward to seeing the finished floor.
