We recently purchased a small log home in Northern Minnesota. The entire interior has been painted with thick white, and we want to restore it to the natural log. What is the best way to remove the paint myself if I am working in small areas such as the bathroom and bedroom. I asume any sort of blasting would not be appropriate. Sander? Grinder? Stripper? Thanks!!!!


Iwould recommend sanding starting with a hard grit like 36 and then smooth out with a 60 or 80 grit.

The paint may be lead based. There is a simple lead test product.
