Clawfoot tub- REFINISHED!

Well it's done!
And it's beautiful!

In case you forgot what it looked like here it is the before:

We did the outside, with the help of Peel Away 1.

Hubs did the feet, aren't they gorgeous?????

And the Tub-n-Tile guy did the inside. We had him put a slightly rough surface on the bottom near the drain so the little ones hopefully won't fall as much.

I just love it!!!!!!

Two stripped!

Well I'm talking about windows, I don't know what you are thinking!
We've got two of the three windows that needed to be stripped done! Now they just need to be primed and painted. I would have done the third, but guess what? I found a HUGE wasp's nest. Of course I did. Of course. And of course I would be allergic to the damn things. SO while they must think Peel Away is the best thing in the world and 10-15 of them are buzzing my head, I had to finish the two windows I started. I didn't start the third. I'm leaving that for another day. If it gets too cold and that day is next spring....OH WELL.

Oh and tub re-finisher guy we picked NEVER called us back.
Of course not. I'm starting to feel a little like Stucco House.
So our third pick called us back. He was here today to do the tub.
Another post soon.....

Well, not counting the basement windows.....and for the record I'm NOT!.....we only have 4 windows left! Out of those 4 3 need to be stripped and 1 can be encapsulated. The 3 that have to be stripped are just too bad to be encapsulated. 2 are piano windows, so we never open them anyway, and we can't get the storms off of them if we tried, but we have to get the nasty lead paint OFF, and then the kitchen window. Then we have this lovely window.

This one can be encapsulated.
But it will be a pain to paint.
Soon, soon.
