Twas The Night Before Christmas. . .

And we are still working away!!

We slept in a bit this morning, since the weather closed down the city again last night and our day jobs were canceled.  We went on a snowy walk to Safeway to get a coffee to start the day . . 

. . . and then we got to work!

The JASCO can took a bit of a beating when it fell down the trailer stairs with me yesterday!  OUCH!
I "paint" the JASCO (which is yucky stuff) onto the doors and then use a scraper to peel the layers of paint off the door.
The doors go from looking like this (above). . . . to looking like this (below).
Then I passed the stripped doors to Brian, who sanded them and made them all smooth and ready to be painted!  It was a lot of hard work and not fun at all, but the doors will look very nice now once we get some paint on them!

WOW! You guys are going nuts!!

Your house is going to be amazing by the time you're done with it! I'm guessing Anamarie is wishing I was more handy around the house LOL :-P

Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
