Recently purchased a Stickley loose cushion settle for $300 via Craigslist.
The low price is a result of a pickled/whitewash finish someone applied at some point.
While I’m not having a hard time removing the finish on the surface, I am having a very hard time removing the whitewash/pickling from the nooks/crannies/and the woodgrain/pores.
Thus far, I am using a citrus-based stripping agent and cloth rags.
How do I get this finish off?
Included 2x images, one before stripping and 1 after … you can clearly see the whitewash in the pores in the after image.
