Goofy grape

As you may recall, all the floors and bannisters in the CrazyStable were painted with 3 coats of enamel in a ghastly ox-blood red (still are). But at least they're not...this:


which is the color inherited by the proud owners of a Bedford-Stuyvesant townhouse, who are newly minted renovation bloggers at the Brownstoner site. Makes our lucky red Chinese floors look like bleedin' Martha Stewart, mate.

Good luck, kids. Hell-oise Hint of the Day: Don't waste your money on that "green" stripper that's supposedly less toxic. Go straight for the lethal stuff with fumes that melt your brain...and buy steel-wool by the case.

That is, if you're really going to strip it. I have to admit, it's kind of growing on me.
