Removing Decoupage From Table

0 0EmailPrintFollow

I recently bought a wooden farm type kitchen table. The previous owner started a decoupage project on the base and quit 1/2 way through. Is there a simple way to remove this? Susan O

I just removed a decoupaged map that I had put on my son's closet door in his nursery (he's 1 and keeps ripping it off himself and eating it! So it had to come down!) It's best to use Wallpaper remover. It comes in a spray bottle and you can get it at any hardware store. Spray it on, let it sit 2-10 minutes, and take a putty knife to it. It scrapes off easily! You do have to use some elbow grease, but its faster than sanding that's for sure!

Does anyone know what will remove regular hodpodge from plastic or metal?

I have decoupaged picturebook pages on our old nursery walls. I need that to come off. Do I just have to sand that off the walls as well? Is there a remover that is gentle to the system?

Yup, I'd probably sand it down and re-finish it. Not knowing the compound with which it was begun, I can't suggest a solvent I would trust. One has to be careful with that stuff; sometimes it creates more problems than it solves. Also I'd check around with my friends and see if any of them could loan me a belt sander. If one could, I'd buy him a few spare belts.

The only way I know how is to sand it. Not very easy I know!
