2july13 working on dining room

After about 4 days of cleaning, moving stuff out of the dining room and organizing, I finally started on refinishing the floor and repainting the built-ins. First, you need to clean the floor, so I wiped it down with TSP and then wiped with water. I will let it dry overnight and start sanding tomorrow. I should be able to get a first coat of tung oil down as well, but will need to let it dry before doing more coats. I also did a test strip of the citrus paint stripper on the cabinets – it looks like they did latex over oil paint, since the top layer starts coming off immediately, but that bottom layer of yellow paint is going to require more time and effort.
