We purchased this amazing chest that is solid wood & in perfect condition minus the 5 coats of paint it had. I knew I could make him handsome again with some work. Little did I know how much work until late last night.
I decided it would be a great idea to start stripping it late last night because there were a few places that had paint that was chipping. I normally don't strip pieces because I almost always use ASCP & there's no need for sanding, priming or stripping. This is where I am now....
I seriously want to pull my hair out. I don't know what I was thinking stripping this piece. There are so many layers of paint & most of it won't come off no matter what I do!
I tried painting it & it's so obvious that the piece isn't smooth.
It looks horrible!
So I am going to try stripping some more & see what happens.
I was so excited about this piece but now I'm a little disheartened.
But I'm going to keep trying & see where I get.
The top actually looks good which gives me hope.
I am excited about the potential this piece has & I had a vision for it the day I saw it so I'm going to keep on trucking on.
Have y'all tackled any projects lately that got the best of you?
Hope everyone has a great Thursday!
It's almost the weekend!
