Our local School of Arts Hall has a very large old table in it that is used for just about everything... It had lino on it that was buckling and lifting. Not good if you wanna put down a cuppa. The lino must be about 40 years old at least...
So us clever Craft ladies have decided to strip it and make it properly usable once again. :)
Last Tuesday we started stripping the old lino off it. The green layer came away easily enough but the brown did not. It had paper stuck to the bottom of it and many little tack nails that we had to get rid of. Especially from the corners.
I have bought a second tin of paint stripper which does wonders on the lino glue that has been left behind. It will be a wonderful finished product I reckon. Can't wait to get there again this Tuesday and continue. :)
