Varnishing act


There haven’t been any huge developments in the last couple of weeks, just a lot of mundane, background jobs like sanding, touching up, scraping etc. The biggest task is, ironically, the least photogenic. I’ve been varnishing the OSB walls. This took a while and involved sanding everything down and then applying two coats of varnish. Award yourself brownie points if you can tell which is before and which is after.

On a more visually interesting level, I sanded and primed the living room inset. This will eventually be shelved. I’m now mulling over ideas for what colour to paint it.

    Really liking the OSB, Scott. I’m voting for the left-hand photo being the after!

      I think you’re right, but I’m struggling to remember! It’s more obvious in person but I think the varnish does have a slight sheen to it and it does bring out the golden quality in the OSB.
