Many of you know that I lived in Italy for 4 years and the Mediterranean colors and style are close to my heart so this week I was inspired to by those colors and patterns for this Mediterranean hutch makeover. This was a piece that I had previously painted and I start this project out by showing you how to remove paint if you don’t like the way your piece turned out, or if you are tired of the look and want something new.

Step 1: Strip the Paint with a Heat Gun
I’ve shown you before how you can remove paint with stripper and a scraper, but you can also use a heat gun and it’s very effective. It’s important that you’re in a well ventilated area because there can be fumes when you’re applying heat to paint. And the heat gun needs to be close, but not too close to the surface. When it starts to bubble and lift, use a paint scraper to remove the paint and pull it all off.
