Don't Be Afraid of Removing Veneer


Great bones, but veneer needed to go.
Peeling veneer.
Not an easy task, but if done right veneer peels right off. The key is patience.
I have always thought the wood under veneer is beautiful.
Finished. Knobs from Hobby Lobby at half price.
So pleased with how it turned out.

    You do not say how you removed the veneer, only "if it is done right, veneer peels right off"

    WHAT DID YOU USE TO PEEL OFF THE VENEER, I WAS USING A FLAT SCREWDRIVER, BUT I THINK I NEED A DIFFERENT TOOL

    Can you show us the tool you use please? Many tools for scraping paint can be found. I have a few but none are multi sided. Thank you so much!

    Absolutely beautiful! I think a lot of wonderful vintage pieces are passed over because they are veneered. Many times the price is lower on pieces that need repair work, and we can pick up a bargain. You certainly turned an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan. Well done!
