I'm having some trouble with the studio floor. I think I told you guys, but I've decided to do a decorative acid stain on the concrete. I spend almost all my free time working on the studio these days.
We put down construction paper before the drywall texture went on, and it was secured with masking tape. Painter's tape wouldn't stick, and just laying the paper on the floor didn't work since there are multiple ladders, scaffolds, and tools being lugged across the space every day.
The best thing we could find was to lay rags soaked in mineral spirits on the residue, let it sit about 10 minutes, then scrape at all of that with a putty knife. Then, I scrubbed it with a sudsy mixture of dish soap and water. Theeennnn, I mopped all of that with TSP.
In the meantime, everything is piled in mind-numbing heaps in Adam's shop.
I realize this is not a horrible problem to have, but it's still making me a little batty. I feel like I've been living out of boxes for years now. It will be done soon. It WILL. And I'm very, very grateful to have a studio at all. I just want it to be done NOW.
