I am a wife, mama and DIY enthusiast. I love sharing ideas on the art of homemaking, food, babies, design and how to decorate on a budget. My husband and I are remodeling our home in Phoenix and I share my thoughts, projects and journey through this blog. I hope you’ll stay awhile and take a look around.
Ok. This was a dirty job. I actually have never had to remove wood stain primer before. I know, that’s a pretty bad confession for a do it yourselfer, but I guess I’ve just been lucky.
I took a trip to Home Depot and was advised to purchase Strip-X Stripper, which worked beautifully.
When attempting this project, make sure to wear gloves, it’s a filthy job! I carefully followed the directions, brushed the stain remover on the surface in one direction, let it sit for 15-30 minutes and scraped away. At first it was kind of fun, but then my arm starting getting tired. Still, I finished the first coat and week later finally had time to apply the second.
After scraping away, I decided to use a white spray paint primer from Rust-Oleum and followed with a white eggshell primer paint. I also used this spray paint to re-finish the metal frames.
I applied to two coats and was extremely happy with the results. I absolutely love what the bachelor table turned into with a little time and effort! The perfect table for four!
