This year my wife and I bought our first house. It's a 1910 bungalow and we love it; however there are a few things that we'd like to change around the house. The first thing that I'd like to tackle is paint stripping and refinishing all the woodwork in the house. I was thinking of starting with some of the bedroom doors. The doors appear to be all solid wood and have at least 4 coats of paint on them, and the paint is peeling in one corner of one of the doors.
In the past, I've refinished some furniture. At that time, I stripped the furniture with a chemical stripper called Citrus type strip. It worked really well, but made a big mess. A friend recommended I try a heat gun or some sort of steamer. I was wondering what your advice would be in stripping all that paint off?
