Had to wear nuclear fallout gear due to the dust it created, even with spraying each section with water before scraping it off.
I developed a technique hooking one finger from the scraper hand onto the edge of the plastic container I was holding up to collect as much of the debris as possible.
The floor still got covered with little bits. But much less than if I hadn't done anything. Now I need to give it a wipe down to get rid of the dust, repair the spots that need doing, then hopefully paint on the weekend. Hopefully paint the whole room, or at least get the ceiling done and primer on the walls.
Working 12 hour shifts during the week, and playing in a volleyball tournament (fund raiser for the Christmas Cheer Board) from 3:30 to midnight on Friday, means it will probably be Saturday or Sunday before I get back to it.
Hopefully, things will progress a little faster now that that's done. I'd like to have my free time my own again... or at least until the next project is under way!
