Yesterday on my general blog I posted about trying to get the old linoleum off my thirty-year-old drafting board. I wrote it there because it was more about me actually taking steps towards generating some freelance architectural work, than about fixing up the house per se.
But it's turned into a houseblog issue.
Because the lino residue stinks. Badly.
And the smell is getting up my sinuses, and it hurts.
And it's giving me a headache.
And that old-pocket-door-turned-drafting-board needs replaced and dumped. Like right away. Which means it's off to lovely Lowe's for plywood this very evening!
I just hope it really is linoleum on here, and not some sort of vinyl-asbestos sheet goods. Those of you who have peeled up linoleum before, does it have a dark gray paper backing?
Whatever this stuff is, it's painful.
