You found your cool vintage drawer pull, but it's covered in nasty, chipping paint. Here is an easy, safe, chemical free way to remove the paint and bring out the beautiful patina of your old hardware.
|I COLLECT RUSTY HARDWARE. DON'T ASK ME WHY. THIS $1 FLEA MARKET FIND HAD SEVERAL COATS OF PAINT RESIDUE. NOT THE MOST, BUT ENOUGH TO REQUIRE THIS EASY PAINT REMOVAL METHOD.|
|YOU NEED: OLD POT, 1/4 C BAKING SODA, TONGS AND A |
SCREWDRIVER OR OLD TOOTHBRUSH
|Place your item in boiling water & baking soda. Boil for 20-30 minutes, |
depending upon how much paint is on the item.
IF PAINT PEELS OF EASILY, YOU ARE DONE, OTHERWISE RETURN TO POT
|CAREFULLY USE A SMALL TOOL OR |
TOOTHBRUSH TO GENTLY REMOVE RESIDUE
