Step 1

Scrape off existing paint on larger, flat surfaces using a Dremel® Multi-Max tool and the MM600 Rigid Scraper Blade.

Step 2

Grind off rust and paint in smaller, detailed sections using any Dremel® Rotary tool and a rotary grinding accessory. Here we used the Dremel® 8200 tool with the 952 Aluminum Oxide Grinding Stone. Depending on how ornate the furniture is, you may want to consider a 538 Abrasive Brush run at a speed below 20,000 RPM.

Step 3

Sand the surface as a final step before painting. Use the Dremel® Multi-Max and MM70P sanding paper for larger, flat surfaces. Use a Dremel® Rotary tool with a Sanding Drum or Abrasive Buff run at a low speed for hard-to-reach areas of your furniture.
