Hi everyone missed you guys ,so I have a couple of projects going on first is my bench ! This thing has really been a battle 1st it's a Orange kinda stain kinda top coat omg . I stripped it layer after thick layer and this stuff came off the consistency of puddy . My goal is to have it painted white with Rustoleum chalked finish paint then give it a chippy finish to show the dark stain undercoat .Here are pics of the before and during .
