I am not into stripping………..furniture.
But, I have a few clients whom I appreciate so much that I will do pretty much anything they ask me to.
One of those clients recently called to tell me that her leather day planner had made a black mark on the beautiful desk we fauxed for her about 5 years ago.
I tried to wash the black marks off. I tried to sand them off. I tried paint thinner. I tried a Magic Eraser which you know from this post fixes everything.
There was no denying it.
I was gonna have to strip for the first time in my career.
I thought I could just strip the area with the stain. But quickly realized that huge circle in the middle of my glazed wood was not going to patch in well.
So I poured stripper on the whole top and was MOR-ti-fied to watch it bubble….
And LISTEN to it bubble. OMGosh….what is IN that stuff???
It is freaky!
It looked like this after the first stripping. So I was forced to strip again and again against my will.
How great to know. The piece is stunning. Hugs, Marty
So. It’s True.
You ARE a stripper.
that makes you adventurous in my book.
I don’t strip. Never. I make it point to never EVER strip.
The desk looks wonderful now.
Hmmm… so YOU’RE a stripper?
Have a good one~
OH my, I would have had a heart attack attempting that! But, it turned out just as lovely as it started!
I would have been a nervous wreck!!!But it turned out beautifully! Who would have thought that a planner would leave that kind of mark?
dude your cracken me up!!! I love it! What an amazing piece and cute chair:)
Welcome to the stipper club baby!
The piece looks amazing!
