Hi, My name is Kim and im 20 years old from Texas-new to the forum...I have always wanted to remodel or flip (as seen on tv) houses my whole life...well my mom had a rent house and is tired of renting it out and wants to fix up and sell....she left the project up to me since this is what ive always wanted to do-btw...my first flip... I jumped right in and tore out some floors and really love doing it just as I thought. This is an older house-Neal Armstrong the astronaut actually had it built...anyhow...the kitchen cabinets has about 100 layers of paint on them-there is wood under there some where and im wanting to see it...they are in pretty good condition and I just could invision such a pretty kitchen if the paint was gone and it was stained a walnut or cherry varnish...My question finally is....is there any gooood kind of chemicals that could get this paint gone instead of sanding??? I tried sanding today with a really course sand paper...(paint striping) but all im getting is striped cabinets with all different colors...hehe. Then i tried paint thinner-(not sure what brand or anything just had some still in the house and thought why not give it a try)--well the cabinets didnt change a color a bit... Please help!
