We have finished some woodwork recently and are hoping to finish it up in the next few months. The woodwork when we purchased the house, covered in paint and texture: Stripped woodwork Stained and finished woodwork A not good picture of the parlor window before we took possession of the house: The same window, mid restoration. The paint on this window was an absolute pain to strip. Partially stained window Finished window! New blinds for the finished window We currently have... 6 windows left to finish and then we can move to the floors! All of the ceiling beams and baseboards are completed, so we just need to finish the windows so that we can refinish the floors. We have spent countless hours stripping and sanding woodwork and I feel like we can see the light at the end of the tunnel for these projects.
