I found a small Queen Anne leg table that at first glance was made from oak. Once I had it home and really looked it over, I noticed that the top had a wavy appearance.
I was contemplating what I was going to do about that when I discovered the top was a glued down laminate. I began tugging at a corner and found it coming off in small pieces. Ugh, this was either going to go okay or it was going to be a nightmare! I store away helpful hints and tips shared by my fellow American Paint Company retailers (which I LOVE because they are so friendly, supportive and willing to help) and one tip I recalled was how to loosen glue. I found a blow dryer and went to work heating up areas and getting a scraper under the edge. It took about 30 minutes of steady work and off it came!
