This was a bigger job then I thought it would be! Stripping paint is no easy thing to do. But I have to say I am loving how they look now. When I first got the chairs at an old thrift store the chair where covered in the thickest black paint ever. It took me days to get all the black off but at the end I go it all off.
If you ever strip paint be very careful It burns bad! I just got the littlest on my lag and wow did it hurt. So make sure you wear good safety stuff...I had shorts on, not a good idea even if it is hot outside. But you live and you learn.
