… after many hours of chemical stripping, sanding, and picking with random tools at the details. I had already spent a lot of time on this project in 2010 and then I also tried to remove the paint near the top when the stone was installed in 2011. So 2012 was the year to wrap it up.

This was me for more than a few hours on Saturday… Just chillin in front of the fireplace with my arsenal of stripping / sanding tools. In addition to the palm sander I used a triangular sander attachment on the dremel.
So glad this step is d-o-n-e!
