Procedure:

Have you got an old chest of drawers in the attic that would be a shame to throw away? Turn it into a wonderful showpiece!

1

Put rubber gloves on and protect your mouth and nose using a breathing mask. Apply the paint remover using a wide paintbrush. Leave it to soak in for about half an hour. It is best to remove the paint outdoors or to take the chest of drawers to a commercial paint stripping service.

2

Push off the softened paint using a scraper. Repeat this process until the wooden structure is uncovered. Tip: If the chest of drawers has slats with decorated or profiled surfaces, it is better to use a clean wire brush or steel wool (but never on oak wood!) instead of a scraper.

3

Now sand down the chest of drawers using a multifunction sander.

4

Then thoroughly remove dust and apply a wood preservative.

5

Once it has dried, coat the chest of drawers with wood varnish or paint (always in the direction of the grain). Leave it to dry again and then apply a second coat.
