The Garage (Apartment)- Part 6

>> 7.24.2012

(continued from part 1part 2, part 3, part 4, and part 5

We did a little work on the apartment this weekend. Nate did an amazing job on the baseboards and if you do a little squinting, the room seems pretty much finished:

 There's still some shoe molding and caulking to do, but I'm really impressed with the difference this makes in the room. I'm especially impressed with Nate for doing it all without power tools! Oh, he did use the Dremel to bring the existing molding up a bit.

I was busy not succeeding at repainting the cabinets.

I did learn an important lesson about paint removers:
I've used the Jasco stuff before, but decided to try something new... bad idea!

In more successful news, I did get the new path area leveled and ready for the new stones:

These suckers are 48" by 22" and weigh 200 lbs each... I'll let you know how that installation goes!

Wow you are certainly more industrious than I - is there any substrate to the path besides hard packed dirt? Are you going to use anything to block weeds?

That's a TBD. We did our last path the correct way:

...but this path might be temporary so we don't really want to make it too difficult to remove. We'll see!

Good luck with the cabinets! We painted our kitchen cabinets and doors- it took nearly forever!

You could look into getting a microwave/convection combo - LG makes them - maybe that will work with existing power?
