We were in a celebratory mood after we secured a pair of affordable pocket doors. That said, we couldn’t be hundred percent sure they were what we imagined until after Cathy had stripped them off the white paint.
The bulk of the paint came off with the Silent Paint Remover. However, the Silent Paint Remover works best on thick layers of paint, so removing the thin layers on these doors was a challenge.
Things began to look promising with practice, and Cathy removed any remaining paint residue with the SOY Gel, until the doors were spotless and then sanded them to a beautiful finish.
They do exhibit the typical wear and tear. That was not only expected, but also desired. We are of the opinion that it adds charm and character and makes the doors a good fit for our old house.
With that cleared up, I can now begin to think about the framing, about how to fit them into the wall space between the library and living room.
