All in a afternoon- Restoring old draws

I have had this set of draws in my shed for a couple of years now.

I had decorated it 10 years ago in a shabby chic style. I thought it's time to get it's old original charm back....

I tried sanding it back by hand and using a scraper but a layer of black paint and white paint was hard to get through.... So bring on the paint stripper!

Once it was covered in paint stripper it was so exciting to watch it bubble and
blister. Then the fun part came scraping it off. Oh and a warning I had gloves on but I got some paint
on my arms and boy does it burn I washed it off straight away and was fine after all in an afternoon the end result was pretty good.....
