stripping the mantel – still going on

05/16/2011 § Leave a comment

yes… it’s been almost 3 weeks and still not done stripping the mantel.  And 3 more to go.  Yikes.

Just to let you all know, stripping is a serious business and I say~ TOXIC, messy.  Hopefully I can say it’s worth it too.

In the beginning I used the green / eco stripper : Ready Strip.

Then, I used something a bit more strong…: Citrustrip from Home Depo.

But now, I’m full on!  It’s Rock-Miracle.  It really works, but whew ~~ can’t work for more than an hour at a time.

ps – what’s all this other thing?  We just got our chimney to work!  I’ll write more about that next.
