Maybe an Oops

We've been slowly working on stripping woodwork in our dining room. But our efforts were leaving a residue in the grain of the wood that I was becoming convinced was milk paint.A quick internet search led me to PDE Paint Remover and we went and bought some today. And I could not resist giving it a try.

I think the remover did the job and took off the milk paint. But maybe I should have read the label more closely because I didn't really think much about the part where it said woodwork may darken.
You think! I'm really hoping this is mostly due to the moisture still in the wood and it will lighten back up by tomorrow. I did wipe it down with vinegar—twice!

This will definitely impact our stain choices. Or we may have to bleach the wood when the paint is finally all off.

On the bright side, most of the latex paint scraped off the edges after the wood had dried some and we went back over it with a scraper. Hopefully more pictures tomorrow.
