So with lots of starts and stops along the way with this project, I seem to be constantly doing things in the wrong order or starting something that I should be finishing with! Ugh! Started out with cleaning, doing interior repairs to make it usable which lead to the desire to paint it.
I really liked the color but boy was it a
to get it done. But after seeing how great the walls looked, the floor had to go!
Lo and behold! The PO decided to use the strongest sub floor glue made to attach the ugly parquet floor - in only some of the areas! Days on end were spent on the floor with a hammer and a chisel trying to get between the parquet and the sub floor. Some spots lost an entire layer of sub floor and I endured many hours sitting on splinters getting hit in the face with flying pieces of parquet wondering why oh why did I not just gut the thing from the beginning???
Today the husband came out to check on where all the profanity was flying from and asked if I needed help gutting the Bullet. I resigned myself once again that more has to go than I planned.
First out was the front couch/bed/storage. The PO had made galvanized boxes underneath and tossed out the plastic storage bins. I planned on putting sliding rails in them and making pull out drawers but after looking at the space with the bed gone, we would be much happier with two nice Lazyboys and a dining table. I will be posting pictures to "rehome" the unit when I get a chance.
This left me with the "well why stop there" feeling so next to go is the folding table that is hanging from a bowed piano hinge and drooping from not being attached correctly right up to the first wall to the refrigerator space that is rotted a few inches up and needed to be replaced anyways.
Then my adorable husband of 18 years asked me if I had more paint since I wasn't planning on pulling those pieces out and now they need paint to match. God it's good I love him!
