3 hours of sanding later, I began to wonder who's great idea this was... Oh, wait, it was mine. Lucky for me, since Rick was not going to have any part of it, we had decided on not sanding the kitchen cabinets since I had spent 4 hours on just one door. But there was still the stair rail which was badly scratched up and needed a new coat of stain. I guess I could be like Rick and not care either way, but I guess I do care... too damn much. So 3 hours later, with sawdust coming out of my nose, I finished sanding down the rail... tomorrow's stain day, and hopefully it won't be as painful.
