Because the bathroom was busy today I decided to remove the paint from the window sill on the landing. It has always looked awful and I have never done anything with it until now!
The previous paint was bubbled, uneven…it was bloody awful to put it mild. I started out with the Deros as per the first picture. It was layer upon layer of paint and I soon realised a knife would be better. I used a Purdy multi tool and managed to scrape off most of it. The bottom layer was like a resin, it reminded me of my dear old Nan’s furniture and the smell took me back 40 years! Anyway, I scraped off the resin as best I could and could not believe my eyes. The sill was a block of slate! I put a 180 grit on the Deros and smoothed it off.
It would be lovely natural but it is not looking that great. Is there a way to either paint it or perhaps a polish I can use to improve the finish?
