I found this little end table at the thrift store months and months ago. It was a cute shape, but the finish was bad. It was only $5, though, and it didn't seem like it would take much to make it look good.
I knew this top coat stuff had to go if this was going to look decent. So, I went and bought some spray stripper. I have never stripped anything before and spray seemed like an easy, safe way to go. I just sprayed it on, waited 15 minutes, and then scraped it off.
Here's the pile of gooey stuff I got off of it.
