I thought I was going to have to notch out my marble floor to accommodate the step, but that would have looked horrible.
So instead I decided to shave off a fraction of an inch off the bottom of the step. Easy-peasy, right? Well, maybe for you! How to do the job without damaging (cutting into) the center component? What sort of saw would work best?
regular-sized back-saw after trying a coping saw and even a miniature miter saw. But first I masked the walls with good old duct tape, for protection.
I was also afraid of scratching the exterior painted finish, or worse yet, wrecking my 'cast iron' balcony! So I used one of my upholstered dining room chairs as a work bench.
Mission: Accomplished! Now I can put Merriman Park back together, again.
This has been such a great week, having the time to work on my house and making so much progress! I've got a list of stuff I need to buy in order to complete the Entrance Hall, but I've been going a little crazy in that department this week and I've been put on a strict budget until next week. (Who needs things like food when there are gorgeous, little things to buy)? Tomorrow, it's back to the old grind ...Oh, well --it was fun while it lasted. I am already starting to decorate my other five rooms --in my head anyway. I 'm so looking forward to turning my ideas into reality.
