Halfway done with the first coat of stain.
By 6:30, I had two coats of stain and the first coat of polycoat on the window. Tomorrow (Sunday), I will sand and add two coats of wipe on poly. This task wasn't nearly as difficult as I imagined - except for the pain in my ankles from standing on a ladder, 16-ft. in the air all day. ("All day" is an exaggeration to add drama to the story.)
In between coats on the window, I added two coats of stain and one coat of poly on the wood trim surrounding the 1920 bathroom door. Scott utilized a mix of original woodwork and new but the sanding, staining, and poly-ing created one beautiful doorway. Another task to cross off the to-do list!
The finished paint job makes the stairs look so elegant. The combination of paint and stain will really look great with the railing system Scott has planned.
Whew! That was a busy day!
