Washing a piece of furniture....

Posted on June 11, 2011 at 1:58 PM
Once you get a peice back to the workshop it is usually very dirty with years of grime.  If I am going to be repainting a piece then I like mix some water and bleach  in a bucket and wash it down. Let it sit for a minute then lightly spray it down with hose and it amazing the dirty grime and water that comes off of a piece. Then I let it air dry and it with the sander and sometimes repeat the process.  I do this process also when it painted.

I saw the article featuring you and your work in This Old House magazine, and looked at your website. I've been remodeling my house, and just can't bring myself to discard used materials. It drives my wife crazy, as her house is not done, and I'm making birdhouses out of lumber that used to be our stairs....but I just can't throw it away. Thanks for helping me feel better about this situation.

One question: I noticed that a lot of the furniture items on your website are painted white. Is there a reason for that? And what is the process you use for painting? Sorry...actually, that was two questions:)

I have done the same thing with old dirty furniture,but I use comet and 0000 steel wool,you have to rinse very well and let it dry in the sun.It removes grime and some of the old paint that is peeling.Then I sand and paint or stain,depending on the look I want.
