I've been meaning to get this post up for some time now. This was actually the first quick fix we did when we moved in last August. At some point the previous owner of 36thirty decided it was a great idea to paint over the beams in the house. The best part is that they were painted with a semi-gloss, institutional green. Classy.
With a single test quart, I was able to visually restore them to "wood." I don't think we could have effectively stripped them due to all the layers of paint. A fab (and cost effective) way to pull it back to the mcm post and beam l+f!
