I’m finding it pretty hard to focus today. As I write this, looking out my window, it’s a beautiful autumn day. The leaves have just changed, it’s warm out, but has that feeling of fall. Birds and squirrels are in manic mode, running through the grass then shooting straight up through piles of leaves searching for the perfect hiding place for winter snacks.
No wait, that’s me.
Regardless of who is trying to hide their chocolate covered almonds, it’s a beautiful, beautiful day and I can’t concentrate on this website of mine. OR the kitchen renovations I should be attending to.
There’s a lot to do with any house renovation but a kitchen or bathroom is the be all and end all of misery. Anything that disturbs pooping or eating is a nightmare.
One of the first things I’ve had to do is remove the large pantry from my kitchen. Doing so, revealed a big blank floor underneath which I had to patch with my floor tiles. Luckily I had enough floor tiles leftover to do the repair.
While I was in the middle of starting to level the floor so I could lay my tiles someting came to me. I should probably do a post on the technique I was using; wet sanding.
Wet sanding is where you sand drywall compound with a damp cloth, as opposed to using sandpaper. In a lot of cases it’s cleaner and easier. Great for when you have to fill a small hole in a wall or even nail holes for instance.
I couldn’t be bothered to set my camera up and start taking pictures so I figured I do a short video. That’d be easier! And probably better!
I should have stuck with the pictures.
The cleaner alternative to dry sanding your drywall compound.
