Supplies I used for my upcycled potato bin project:
To do this Easy-Off technique, all you are supposed to do is spray it on and let it sit.
So, I made sure to spray the entire piece and then give it time to do it’s “magic.” You’ll want to do this this outside making sure to use gloves and a mask.
After I let it sit a bit, I used a scrub brush and started removing the stain. I had a water hose handy and rinsed off my brunch as I went.
After I scrubbed every part of the piece, I rinsed off each section with a damp rag to get the excess off. I also used a dry towel to dry the piece as I went. You don’t want water soaking into the wood.
Although the Easy-Off did remove the stain from the piece, if you look real close it almost made this pine piece fuzzy.
I have to say I’m pleased with the end color, but I think I will stick with a furniture stripper. That said, I definitely had to sand it down and hope it fixed the fuzzy look.
Final thoughts: I am loving the new color and yes sanding it did the trick! Now on to the door fronts. Oh, and no, I am not doing chicken wire either!
Be sure to come back next week for Part 2 of this makeover! I’ll be focusing on making the doors on this piece pop. Here’s a sneak peek at what I have in mind.
