Case in point - stripping paint off a dresser.
Mind you, stripping the paint off is just the first step of this whole entire process.
This past weekend, my very patient husband walked me through the entire process and today I strived to tackle this while my daughter napped.
So, I coated the dresser with tons of stipping gel and waited over an hour to start stripping. Did I tell you it was 34 degrees outside? Yes, it was. So with frozen hands, I started stripping the paint. Yeah, not so good.
The paint would not come off. I was like "whaaa?". And, to top it off I don't think I'm dealing with very nice wood here. Who knows. But, I can honestly say I was defeated today.
The worst part about this is that I have at least two more rounds of this to go before I even sand it. And we're expecting a snow storm tomorrow so this baby will be probably sitting in our garage all week.
Why do I do this to myself? And, to think I could've bought this dresser for $500.
I know. I almost bought it, but then I thought, no, we're trying to save for college, etc. I just can strip our current dresser. Ugh! So, now I'm off to have my glass of wine. I think I deserve it today! :)
