Paint Shaver Pro

5 mins with the paint shaver pro and the sander and we are back to bare wood. This will make the job so much easier.

Wish they had never painted that cedar. It is beautiful but we have no good way to ratio between the boards all the way back to bare wood since it was also stained.

Beck's new outdoor sink

The top is made of an old solid wood door. Beck and Em sanded, stained and polyurethaned it. The sink is solid cast iron we found at restore.

We just need to add the bottom shelf and put a facia on it.
