Clearcoating a Stripped Vintage Ferrous Metal Medicine Cabinet?
The medicine cabinet completion was delayed due to ....
THE ENTIRE BATHROOM BEING REBUILT!
What a pain in the butt
It was discovered the ceiling beams, and with investigation, the floor beams, and subsequently on several stories, were rotted through due to likely decades of leaks ignored. So, the bathroom was completely demolished, walls demolished, the floor and ceiling demolished, new joists installed, new pipes, new walls erected, and bathroom rebuilt from the ground up. They changed the position of the door (which used to be directly across from the sink) and somehow managed to reinstall the sink a few inches lower than it should be which together makes bending over in the small space to do something like wash one's face a little bit more tight. The solid wood door that I fastidiously stripped of 8 years of paint and Impervo'd to perfection was thrown out exchanged for a cheap door whose style doesn't match the rest of the room and resembles a fragile cardboard box. I managed to have them keep the shower door, sink, and ...
... The medicine cabinet is still here.
Still waiting to be clear coated!
I'm actually getting ready to hit it very shortly.
The product I mentioned in my last post I bought in a rattle can. It is also sold in liquid but is more expensive ... (I think the rattle can was about $16+/- and the can (I think it was a quart) around $30-something. I've got a superb spray setup but opted for the cheaper can. I hope it lays it on OK.
Here you a go, a few pics of the bathroom as it looks now.
Medicine cabinet will get a once over and then the clearcoat.
