New Built-In

Jovita and I found a built-in from the 1920's at an antique store. It had wood grain paint that needed to desperately needed to be removed. So we both grabbed our sanders and went to work. Here it is in the antique store with that ugly wood grain imitation paint. Untitled Here it is during sanding. Untitled Here it is done exept for the shelves and glass. Untitled


  1. Did you guys sand off all that paint? Yuck. You guys need a heat gun! Looks beautiful though.

  2. Thanks Amanda and Shasha Kid. Yea we sanded it all off. We do not have a heat gun. Are heat guns very effective? I am debating on getting one.

  3. If you're going to do much paint stripping, you need a heat gun. The $60 special will do. Oh, and scrapers.
