A classic table with a rustic twist, this driftwood-style farm table is crafted from unfinished wood. Once you have the majority of the paint off, wipe the chair down with a wet rag and/or steel wool to remove any remaining stripper and paint, and to prevent the stripper from drying on the wood surface. If there are any slightly rough areas, use painter’s masking paper in the same manner as sandpaper, as it acts like a super-fine sandpaper and makes the surface slick.

While the stripper is still wet, use the brush to remove paint in areas the putty knife cannot reach and to give it an overall scrub. In this step, begin to add your creativity and start to outline the direction for the final look. This type of projects always takes 2 to 3 times longer than you may think, especially if the techniques are new to you.
