Despite losing Saturday to a wedding, and 1/2 day Sunday (was overserved)
I did getthe following accomplished: spent Friday night getting my first coat of poly on the wainscoting in the Billiard room, Sunday: a second coat of poly, final coat of paint in the bathroom, and Eq closet prepped for painting.
The Billiard room photos:
The dark photos make it a bit hard to see, but the first 2 coats of poly are really bringing out the depth and grain in the wood. I'm very happy with how that is going
I am using a satin level of sheen - I wouldn't want it any glossier (although the flash in the photo below is a worst case)
A question for the photo below, Should I paint the interior of this book case a darker color, or leave it as is?
And the "almost finished" bathroom photos, need to give the tile a deep cleaning, and remount the mirror and accessories
Eq closet ready for paint, followed by equipment and dressing out the wiring
This weeks Plan:
Monday Night - steel wool all the wainscotting for a final poly coat, and vacuum and wipe down this area
Tuesday - Final Poly coat and misc woodwork touch-ups througout the rest of the basement
Wednesday - Paint the Eq closet, and repaint the flat black ceiling surround the theater room
Thursday - hang projector and reinstall/setup some equipment
Friday - Entertain some out-of-town company (and a rough preview of basement over beers, and a blu-ray !!
