I'm so upset right now! My closing date got pushed back because my home appraisal, which has taken 10+ days to get back, won't be on my lender's desk until Monday. Yeah, the day I was supposed to close. After that it goes to the underwriters in Sioux Falls, SD, then I can close. Probably Wednesday. For those who are keeping track, that's two unexpected days I have to wait to bust down walls and rip out fake wood paneling. It wouldn't be such a big deal, but I have roommates who need to move in before classes begin August 20th. One roommate needs to be out of her place by Aug 1, but she luckily has a place to stay in the meantime. See the urgency?
I used a chemical stripper to try to get the remaining paint residue off from one of the salvaged doors, and all that happened was the paint stayed in the cracks and the door became covered in a sticky flamable snot. Fantastic... I'm going to try giving it a light sanding next to see if that would give me a better shot at refinishing. At least these aren't my real doors yet! I don't mind messing up on some salvaged doors that will most likey end up in a closet.
I had a dream about the doors and how they would work being hung in a closet. I need a life.
