Scrub-A-Dub-Dub

We had a two-hour window that we were able to return to The Nest for two hours tonight, and we brought Penny with us for the first time! We weren’t quite sure how she would react, as there is a small, yappy Pomeranian to the left of us that greeted us on earlier dates to the house. It’s not an obnoxious dog though, which is good, because we enjoy hearing the many birds that frequent the yard.

Shhh. I’m listening.

Since we didn’t have a lot of time, we assigned ourselves two tasks, but only managed to get to one completed: preparing the cabinet doors/drawers and cabinet shell inside for priming, which we’ll tackle this week after work.

We set up a work area in the backyard, filled up a bucket of soap and water, and grabbed the spray bottle of Goo Gone for the really sticky, grimy buildup that populated some of the pieces.

After having set the pieces out in the sun to dry up, we brought them back into the living room. We will need to give them a quick sanding before we go to town on them, but unfortunately we didn’t have any on hand. And the tracks need to come off of the drawers.

Izzie took the top, I took the bottom. A lot of grime near the microwave, but Goo Gone definitely helps to alleviate that. We will need to do a major Frog Tape session next time we’re here, so that’s something to look forward to!
