Please enjoy with me the newly discovered "After Rafter". As you can see the "Before Rafter" is covered in nasty powdery paint surely as bad for the lungs and brain as it is for the soul. But after much sore-armed-wet-work with a pressure washer the beautiful old-school heart pine rafters are revealed. Enjoy them now though because soon they will once again be covered with white latex history hider. I know it's tragic but it needs to be done.
This is the pattern that was created on the floor as the water droplets fell from the rafters onto the stripped paint particles. I think it's pretty.
