Early this morning, I finished the floor.
I decided what to do about the too-shiny interior walls. I'll simply brush over them with steel wool and then add a coat of satin poly over the gloss. I understand that some cabinet makers do exactly that -- they'll use undercoats of clear gloss to avoid over-darkening the wood, and then finish with satin. I think it'll work well.
|This is too shiny. It's nice during the day, but any kind of flashlight reflects blindingly... Fortunately, there's an easy solution!|
Next, I'll frame screens for the four windows (two large lower ones and two small loft openings). I'll use an old brace drill that belonged to my grandad to create a T-dowel door latch. I'll build two benches that can be pushed together to create a full-size bed, using a leaf board that'll run the length and sit between them.
Look for pictures soon!
