A customer recently asked if I could sand and strip a black/brown IKEA Hemnes Bridging Shelf and stain it to match her existing grey/brown IKEA Hemnes collection.
Below are photos of the sanding and paint stripping process, which took 3.5 hrs due to the thick factory coating. The required tools are as follows:
- 5″ orbital sander w/ 40, 80 and 120 grit sanding disks
- Coarse steel wool
- Oil-based paint stripper
- Scrapper or 5-in-1
- Dremel with sanding attachments for corners and fine edges
- Sanding block
