My Trailer- Redo Days 14 & 15- Stripping and Scraping

 
This is not the fun part.

And I said I wouldn't bore you with this, but except for work, writing, and other things I had to do, this is really all I've done for the last two days. So, boring or not, this is what you get.

The brighter white area left of the door is what I have done.

In case you can't really see the difference in the whites, I've outlined the section that's done. Done is relative, of course. After it's stripped, it will all have to be (lightly) sanded before painting. Think I'll have it painted before October?

My hands are actually sore from pushing the scraper.

I did do one other "different" thing, but it's even more boring (although it makes me extremely satisfied). Fixed my favorite sandals with Shoe-Goo yet again. I wonder how many times I can get away with this before they really die.

Well, I did put all three vinyl samples in the trailer after dark and looked at them under LED lights, which is what will be in there. That made the decision easy. I'm going with the one I originally chose. Hope to pick that up tomorrow.

And I received the two fabric samples I ordered. Definitely not one of them. Too aqua. I'll try again.

I think it's going to be a cooling shower and early bed for me. I know, I'm such a party girl.

(BP -8 and counting)

I can definitely see the difference. Doesn't look like a fun job
