Do it! Strip painted wood doors

Style at Home (UK) - - LOVE IT -

1 Be­fore get­ting started, check the paint you’re strip­ping doesn’t con­tain lead pig­ments. Use a lead test­ing kit – if the re­sult is pos­i­tive, use a chem­i­cal strip­per. 2 Ap­ply the paint strip­per us­ing an old paint­brush (wear pro­tec­tive gloves and gog­gles). Leave for the rec­om­mended length of time in the prod­uct in­struc­tions. 3 Use a flat-headed scraper to scrape off the paint and re­veal the bare wood, and a shave hook to re­move paint from any mould­ings. 4 Fol­low­ing the prod­uct in­struc­tions, work either white spirit or wa­ter into the stripped sur­face with a cloth to re­move the strip­ping chem­i­cal so­lu­tion. Sand the door to fin­ish.
