Time to try and finish removing all of the old paint from around the Front Door. First, I’ll have to remove the Door Bell Twist…

Many different types of Door Bells have been installed on this frame…

The Door Bell Twist, removed…

Bringing out the heat gun…

Some objects buried beneath the paint layers…

The objects ended up being three really sharp tacks. Not sure why these were driven into the Door Frame…

Finally, all of the old paint removed from the exposed portion of the Door Frame…

There’s something metal jammed in the old Door Bell hole…

Got a grip on it and pulled it out…

Ended up being an old nail…

I’ll be using the Wood Repair Putty to fix the old Door Bell hole and any other messed up areas…

The Wood Repair Putty applied…

out of curiosity, I stripped some of the paint from the outside of the screen door. I may be mistaken, but it looks like it’s made of oak. This would make sense, because when I removed it several years ago to replace the screen, it was VERY heavy. It’s really a shame it’s in such bad condition because it would probably look great in its natural state instead of being painted. I’ll have to do some thinking on this…

Since I’m removing paint, I may as well get this part, too…

Lots of nasty old caulk and paint to remove…

Working my way up…

This already looks 1000% better…

The Wood Repair Putty is dry, so time to sand…

Looks even better after being sanded…

This area looks MUCH better, too…

Just a little bit more to go to get to the top of the Door Frame…

All of the old paint removed, and now some sanding…
