Removing Paint Stains from Wood Furniture

Many of us have had this happen. You are busily painting and did not completely cover a piece of furniture. Much to your dismay the living room wall looks great, but the end table is covered in spatters. This is a guide about removing paint stains from wood furniture.

I found a couple of ladder back chairs in our storage facility that my daughter wants to take with her to college. One of chair legs had some dried paint spatters on it.

To remove them, I used a Scotch Brite pad and Murphy's Oil Soap. It removed a little of the stain in some areas where the paint was a little thicker and I had to scrub a little harder. To fix this, I used some Old English scratch cover polish and a soft cloth to put the stain back in those areas.

The chairs aren't perfect, but will be fine for my daughter and her roommate to use in their apartment. I wouldn't recommend this for antique or really nice furniture, but it works for furniture that doesn't have to be in mint condition.
