I am so excited about my learning project that it has been hard to reign myself in and take the necessary steps! I just want to get my hands dirty! As my first step I had to learn how to remove paint from my old dresser. This great YouTube video was a huge help to me.
I learned what I need to buy in order to get started. I need: CitriStrip, a paint brush, gloves, a mask, rags/ paper towels, a spray cleaner to remove wax and grime, a 5 in 1 painters tool, sandpaper, paper bag, Tung oil, slideez lubricant (for the drawers), and a stain or wood paint of my choosing.
Something I had to learn about was the language I was using. Was I refurbishing? Refinishing? Restoring? This article helped me understand the lingo!
