stripping the mantel – still going on

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.
