Pie Safe Part 2



I had the opportunity to spend a couple of hours on Ms. Kay's pie safe this week.  This project is going to be a slow process.  As you can see, the old white paint that was shown in the first pictures was doing a very good job of covering up this nice blue paint that was applied sometime before Caesar was in office.  The picture above has the sides stripped down to the wood and the middle section is holding on to its color with all of its might.  The stripper that I am using seems to have very little effect on this super paint, so I am going to wait for it to dry and try a new approach.  I have had good luck with a rubber sanding wheel, so I will let you know how that turns out.

Happy New Year everyone and thanks for being a part of this blog with me!!

Sometimes challenges are met, and sometimes you just get stuck at work...

Was the blue paint milk-based? it may have been more valuable with that coat left intact.

Personally I love the blue paint!

Thanks for the encouragement guys.

Gorges- The blue paint was an old laytex I believe and the customer wanter it gone. It has soaked into the wood due to the soft pine, so this piece will have to be stained. Should still turn out nice. I have a lot of work still ahead of me!
