Many moons ago my mother painted some beautiful victorian bedside tables (back when they ended up in yard sales). I'm not even sure of the wood underneath, most likely pine, nor am I sure of how many layers may be lurking underneath. I would like to know the best process of removing this paint and restoring them to their natural state since their value has most likely been diminished by the painting anyway. By the way, these are in my house in Maine, an 1853 house by the ocean built by a couple of drunken fisherman. Feel like doing a remote from an Island? I can even help - I'm in the production business!
