I'm not worried about attempting some of these projects. But I have to admit that I really don't know what I'm doing. I'm any of you who know anything about wood working are cringing when you see these, but it's actually been a fun project. These platforms aren't fancy furniture, but they're pretty sturdy and should work just fine. I thought this would take me about 3 days. More like 3 weeks and I'm still not done. But I'm getting close.
Mom was here for a couple of days. Yesterday afternoon she did some sanding for me. Then helped me get the primer on the bases.
Today I decided to do a bit more work with wood filler, then more sanding, then more primer. But the headboards are currently drying. They'll need some more sanding then I'll start with the final paint. Hope don't get too much more paint on my concrete floor. It's nice to be able to do this in the living room instead of trying to haul the pieces up and down the stairs to the basement.
Yes, It Gets Hot.
