We had a pretty major furniture stripping day last week and it included a beautiful bedroom set. I wanted to show you these pictures because not only do I think this headboard is wonderful, I think the work done on it so far is pretty great as well.
We have a very efficient immersion stripping system here which allows us to get wood items very clean as you can see in these before and after photos. The wood is so clean that afterwards it just needs some sanding and it is ready for a new stain or paint. Hand stripping just doesn't get the job done as well as this!
Isn't this headboard fantastic? I love the old beds that people used to make. So much character and the height of this piece makes such a grand statement.
Have you attempted to hand strip something and it just didn't turn out as well as you hoped? Bring it to us! And we would love to see photos of your projects in the comments below.
