My Mum came down to help out with another Lady-Do Day, where ladies get sh*t done, so a job that would have taken me 10hrs on my own took us 5hs together. NOW, I'm nowhere near done, so there'll be many more hours to go… but at least it's been started.
|You can see the four different |
Mine is a heat gun, which can burn the wood quite badly if you don't pay attention and it also releases fumes into the air, but goodness it's fast.
My Mum likes the SPR (Silent Paint Remover) which is also a heat tool, but it doesn't release fumes and is safer… and a bit slower.
Neither of these worked to our satisfaction, so we got out the chemicals… which also stink, and make more of a mess.
|Turns out this one was the best!|

Right: after taking 5 layers off, taken with morning sun (looks like I might need a dark stain to go with the brick)
