I've posted about these chairs before, but I have another question.
I'm covering these chairs with a new fabric that has a bit of very deep red in it so I painted the wood a very deep red. Before painting, I used a gray primer, BIN Ultimate Stain Blocker. But because I was afraid I'd always have to worry about chipping, I decided I didn't want painted wood, but want to remove the paint (4 coats!) and then use a deep red stain instead. So, yesterday I started the stripping process with Strip-eze. Since the wood is mostly flat (rounded on the edges), I thought it would be a cinch. It's been YEARS since I've stripped any paint. I'm not a super patient person when it comes to projects. I want to get them done quickly but it seems I have a mess on my hands. Is there some kind of shortcut or tip I don't know about in getting this done quicker than it's going? I'm doing the work on a table on my deck. I feel like I haven't allowed myself enough room to spread things out -- or something. Since the directions on the Strip-eze say to use in a well ventilated area, it seemed that outside would make more sense. But it's not exactly balmy weather outside, either. :-(
