Saturday Night and Sunday Morning

Post by Piers » Wed May 04, 2011 7:38 pm

No, not the wonderful Albert Finney film from 1960, nor the Black Box Recorder song, which is just as wonderful, in different ways.

I'm talking about my hallway, a wrecking bar and mallet!

I started on it while Tash was dropping off the kids, then stopped so we wouldn't come home to a bomb site.
When she left in the morning to go shopping and retrieve them, I finished it off - no more tiles!

Now I need gallons of varnish and a good sander....

Would strongly recommend just going to Kennards and hiring a proper floor sander if you weren't already planning to do so. I've discovered (the hard way) too many times that thinking I could do a job with basic consumer tools. It's much easier, way faster, and eventually much cheaper to just get the good kit.

ditto Scott's remark. Been there done that.
The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
