I know some of these finishes say no sanding required, even what I am using on the stairs and rail. But sanding will be done between coats. Of course a floor sanding is a heck of a lot bigger job. ;)

Sheep skin. Cost $15 local. Have to use paint thinner to clean up.

Used that in the front bedroom over rosewood. I will have to go back and hit it with a lite sand for a third coat.

There is a wood pad and a painters poll screws in.

Yep, windows open in just that room and running a big old box attic fan pointing out the back door. Bad thing, I had to shut down the fan and close windows due to the weather. :(

Going to try and get the 4th coat down this morning before the rains start. That TS will be coming up this way. Forecast to as much as 27" of rain thru Sunday. :o Shouldn't be a big problem here, I hope.

Hunker down my Friend and hopefully it will not spawn any twisters as it moves North.  We are only forecast to get 8" to 12" of rain.  ::)

'Only' :D That's still nasty enough, it would put indoor pools in old basements up here. ;)

There are no basements in our part of the country.  What comes down runs off.  Of course it may back up in low lying areas so flooding is always a threat.  :-\

About as ready as I can Lynn. Added extra weight to all covered wood piles. ;D

Had time to do the 4th coat.









Suppose to dry out as a semi gloss finish. I'm still up in the wind if I will drop it down to a satin finish. To do that, one just orders a gallon of that finish and it does it in one coat.

On a side note. They stated that one gallon will finish out 500sf. This room is 12'x16'. Just about used the full gallon. Might have maybe 6-8 oz left. ;D The first coat, I used a third of a gallon and didn't think I would have enough. ;D

Update on the weather here. Barry was a bust, thanks God. We are just getting rains. Dry air from the north had sheared the storm which saved a lot of flooding down here. ;D

Still getting rain from the storm and that will still be coming down tomorrow. Nothing heavy and much needed here. ;D
