Not a fan of the colour scheme (bit of an understatement), but my plan is to strip the paint off and re-stain the wood. The idea with this writing desk is it will replace Artur’s current computer desk in our spare bedroom – excuse the mess!
I hope to start over the weekend. Will be updating this post, with my progress!
OK, it’s been a while, but off-line life has been getting in the way of blogging or starting either of these two projects! – Opps!
Anyway, this weekend (2nd/3rd August – time has flown by!), I got started on the vintage writing desk. I had a few options available to me to get rid of the green. As said before, my plan was to strip the paint off and re-stain the wood, but now I might re-paint it. Which, will still require me to strip the paint somewhat.
Stripping the paint
There were a couple of options I considered for this:
- The chemical method – Using traditional ‘paint stripper’ from our garden centre / DIY store
I went for the latter option(!) and two days later, we were ready for… deciding if I was staining or painting the desk.
