1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / ruined eames chair? oh, no! on: July 29, 2005 06:17:08 PM
ok. so i brought a chair home from work that is herman miller (eames design) plastic, fibreglass-reinforced. it's a lovely ivory/egg color. only thing- i work at a teen center, and years ago it was painted with acrylic (i believe) paint by a bunch of the kids who were just having a good time and went paint crazy.

sigh.

does anyone have any suggestions about taking the paint off? i'm not positive it is acrylic (it may be oil) so i'm trying to avoid super-crazy-chemical route that could lead to disaster. but there might be some magic solution that would take off oil or acrylic with no issues?  i'm also a little nervous about scraping the paint off, because i don't want to damage the chair. i'm not looking to sell the chair or anything (it's really nice and comfortable and my boyfriend and i are trying to collect them) so it doesn't have to be perfect. i just want it looking more like its original self.

any ideas or support would be appreciated. : )
