Paint Removal

Instead of adding paint to plastic keyboards, I am removing paint from wooden chairs.
While looking for discarded keyboards at a recycle centre outside of Almonte, ON, this table and chair set caught my eye. More compact than my current kitchen set, thus, it is more appropriate for my small quarters.

Before I started using a heat gun to strip the industrial-coloured green paint, I was using the table in the garage as a work table, fashioning upon it several of The Marilyn Suite.

Just as we as humans are hard-wired to find repetition mesmerizing, repetitive work is soothing to our souls.
