FAT Paint Company (TFPC) makes artisan chalk-style paint, NOT chalk paint. FAT Paint is a latex-based paint “FAT’n’d” up with a little bit of chalky minerals. Hence the clever name.
Netties Expressions holds Sign Painting Workshops throughout the year. Groups of 4 allows for a more intimate and relaxing setting. It also allows me to give each of you more one-on-one time with your sign.
Because of the shape that this dresser was in, I decided that I better go about this project the correct way.
I took the dresser apart. Removed the drawers, took the knobs off the drawers, took the mirror off the dresser and also took the mirror apart.
I bought some furniture stripper. I used a cheap bristle brush to apply the varnish remover to the entire dresser. (Be sure to wear rubber gloves, long sleeves and don't go barefoot when applying this. It burns if it lands on your skin.)
I let it sit for 5-10 minutes before using a scraper to start the process of removing the stain from the dresser. You can tell once it's starting to work as the coating starts to bubble. I ran into some really tough areas where I had to use a few coats of this furniture stripper before all the old stain and varnish was removed to my liking.
