Antique baby walker

lauradebFebruary 28, 2009

Hello, I am trying to refinish an antique baby walker. It has old peeling chipping blue paint on it. I have tried sanding it down, and have had some success but it is really hard to get all the paint off. I was hoping someone has a suggestion for a quicker and easier way to strip?

Chemical strippers.
Either the newer ones that are marginally safer or the old standby of methylene chloride stripper.

Yes, chemical strippers -- more effective, more efficient, and if there is any chance of lead-based paint being on there, safer than sanding. Just use in a well-ventilated area.
