I spend the weekend working on the painting the basement walls and I finished putting on the fourth coat of Watertite paint on Sunday. The "aged pearl" color sure brightens the basement up. I still have the small wall with the electrical panel and the northeast corner left to paint this summer. I can start paint the wall with the electrical panel on Wednesday but the northeast corner needs to cure until Sunday before I can start paint it.
Once I finished painting the wall I can pull up the drop cloths and plastic and start preparing the floor for painting.
While waiting for the paint to dry in the basement, I spent Saturday afternoon hand sanding the railings on the right side of the picture. I thought I would be using my power detailer sander for this but the head was to large to fit in between the railing going down the stairs. It took me 6 hours to do that small area. I try to working on it Sunday when the deck is in the shade but wearing a dust mask in a Heat Advisory was just too much. The deck can just wait until the weather is cooler.
