Sharon's exhaustive Googling of renovation topics such as "repairs to pocket-door mechanisms" and "ways to remove rust on hardware" were paying off. And the stained-glass transoms, beadboard, column capitals, and plate rails emerged from under layers of paint that she and the kids stripped off. It took only two scorched door casings before Sharon mastered the heat gun to strip them expertly.
