have I mentioned how much I hate stripping painted furniture? Stripping paint is NO FUN! It is definitely more work than stripping a clear coat or stain.
I had a lovely customer ask me to refinish this set for her and although I did see the pictures she emailed me I had no idea it would be in such 'rough' shape. After going over my concerned about the set and the fact that I was worried I would not be able to get that PERFECT finish I typically do, she was still on board and gave her blessings to move ahead.
Hard to tell what I was in for from these pics…
Durning the 3rd layer of stripping
what a mess!
So anyway, after a few days of working on this set and particularly, the tall piece, I am very happy with the results.
My customer loves how it turned out and really, that is all that matters to me!
