Another sad spot for these chairs, which might be an instance for other dining chairs as well, is the sorry state of the legs. This could be paint, lacquer, varnish, polyurethane, or any number of other finishes.
I recommend Citristrip stripping gel for its low fumes and effectiveness. The instructions on the product states you can wait up to 24 hours before removing the Citristrip; however, I found it to be easiest and most effective to remove within about a half an hour.
Then I sanded the corners of the chairs for an antiqued look. After that I rubbed most of it off using a damp rag. Up next, spray it with a Polycrilic to seal all of the exposed wood and keep it from being easily scratched. If you like what we’re doing, please like us on Facebook at: or share this on Pinterest!
