These pictures do not in any way convey how very dusty our house was after the walls were sanded. The picture above shows a pair of gloves sitting on the banister, which is actually black, but looks white.
Here are the stairs. The dust in the center has been worn away by people going up and down, but hopefully it gives an idea of how dusty they are.
And here is a very frightening picture of some crazy-looking person who has been wiping the dust off the walls all day long. This house is turning me prematurely gray, it seems.
