Stripping off old paint


After cleaning walls, be sure to remove agents by thoroughly rinsing with clear water; some residues may cause a reaction.

I only sprayed it with very little water. Sprayer set to fine. And then I wiped it with the towel. Yesterday I cleaned everything again and removed the paint that did not want to stick and scratched the walls a little bit more. I noticed there is a plaster there, no drywall, so maybe that's why it did not work? Also, while I was removing old paint I was sweating a lot, so this just tells me that the humidity is very high in that closet and that might be why the paint did not want to stick. Today i will paint it with Gardz, then patch with the compound, then sand it and paint with Gardz again and then I will finally paint. This should make those closet walls be more durable for next few years. I did that before in my bathroom and worked great for old damaged walls.

The only part i don't like is what happened to the wood frame at patch spots when it connects with the drywall. It kind of lighten up and lost color although i put 2 layers of varnish. (might happen while i was cleaning the the left over joint compound) I will try to simply paint it over with the stain marker. I hope it will just go darker, unless you know a better technique to cover it up? I personally think that chemicals are much worse when it comes to stripping wood compared to the heat gun although heat gun is not safe and not healthy friendly.
Attached damaged varnish and painted closet after gardz fixes.

Good job dude


You could fix the edge with some polly shades.
One of the darker colors, walnut maybe.

If you are going to tape that green edge to do it, use the 3m orange core "safe release" I think it is called, used for delicate surfaces

I painted my doors with the Minwax oil Polyurethane clear satin twice and i am seeing weird effect. It looks like some parts are whiter then others, like the paint would not be there. See attached? What is that? Do i need to put more poly when painting?

From the pics it looks like the white areas correspond to where light hits the door. I can clearly see sunlight shining on the bottom right of the door, but is there light hitting the top of the door from the left too? I have a feeling light glare in the pic is making it hard to see exactly what's going on.

The only thing I know that can cause 'ghosting' like that in an oil base clear is if moisture gets trapped in it. I've seen it happen when the product is applied in humid conditions... That seems like a long shot though, unless you have some unusual conditions in the house.

Is it possible that the dark stain is UV damaged (bleached out) in those areas? And the minwax is accentuating that?

Stripping off old paint


Just found this thread. The re-finished wood looks great! I tried the same in our house, but there was only pine underneath, and it was never finished. The original paint was forest green, and it was impossible to strip. The house was built in 1927. I am going to take a beating for saying this, but the heat gun method is fine. I've done it several times before, just do it in a well-ventilated area. I then strip with a chemical stripper, wash, and stain. At work, my boss makes me strip paint from porches with a plumbing BLOW TORCH, to get it done faster. You constantly have to wet the porch so it doesn't catch on fire. I just ended up repainting my trim. Point is, NEVER remove old trim in favor of new just because it makes the project easier. Historical trim is what makes up a house! I'm glad to see you refinished your trim. Check out the link below, part way down the page. This guy re-did this house, stripping paint from woodwork, and it looks really nice.
