Strippers and Bunk Beds

I've started the project of stripping off the white paint of the bunk beds my sisters and I shared when we were kids. When we were little, the beds were a dark wood stain. But since, my mom freshened them up with white paint. Call me nostalgic, but I want to see them the way they once were.

A few weeks ago, I picked up a citrus-based stripper and other supplies at the hardware store. I wanted something not-so-toxic, since kids will be sleeping in these beds. And with one layer of paint, there's really no need for highly-corrosive strippers. 

I started the project this weekend, and still not sure what exactly I'll find under the paint. I'll strip and sand and hope for the best.

If the paint is stubborn, I'll just repaint. Alice has requested the color lavender. 

I'll keep you posted.
