    No way would I be spending the money to send old trim like that to be stripped.It's just common
    stock trim.

  • Posted in thread: Poorly painted old trim on 05-18-2015 at 09:34 PM
    OK so now you faced with weeks of stripping, sanding, filling, sanding again, priming, going
    back and redoing the areas you missed, priming again, then painting.Or just removing and
    replacing all the ...
