Sandblasting: Another way to strip wood and metal

Liquid chemical isn’t the only media we use to strip furniture and architectural pieces, we Sandblast too! I find this method more enjoyable personally. It’s fun to see the paint and stain come off as fast as it does. Here I’m using a 200-250 mesh Garnet Restoration Blend. It’s good for wooden surfaces. This method is also perfect for stripping paint and rust off of metal surfaces and furniture when using crushed glass. It can also be used to distress the wood to achieve a driftwood/antique effect. Enjoy the videos. Credit to “Loser” by Beck and “Clocks” by Coldplay

Rocking Chair Restoration

 Slap on more paint they said! It will be fine they said! This little beauty had 4 layers of paint on it and stripping it off wasn’t easy. Nailed it!
