About 18 months ago, I was given this piece of furniture from my grandparent's estate. Since then it has been collecting dust and spider webs in our garage. I wasn't really sure where I wanted to use it and I really was dreading stripping and re-painting it.
Well, the time has finally come, I am in the middle of redoing our toy room into an older "game" room... more on that later. Last Saturday I had it in my mind that I was going to striping and re paint the table in one afternoon. Sounds simple, right? HA!!! I was a really frustrated after I could only get the first layer of paint off and the layers, yes that's right LAYERS, of oil based paint. I spent all afternoon and into the early evening trying to get the paint off. Finally I decided that maybe the orbit sander would make it go a little bit fast...and it did, but I ran out of sandpaper. So now if sits until next Saturday, when I hope to get it ready for painting, may be even get a coat of paint on it.
Does anyone have any ideas how to get the paint off the hinges? I really think they are unique and I would like to have them back to their regular state.
Can you guess what color I plan to paint it?
