When we moved in, it was covered in travertine tile with a janky gold frame and glass doors. Under that was 3 layers of paint. Under that was the original brick we wanted to bring back. We started with Peel-Away 7, then did another round of Peel-Away 7, then when to Citristrip with a stiff wire brush.
The shots date from 04/03/07 to 05/15/07.
