Remember Jackson Pollock, the artist famous for the paint splatters? I got to thinking about him last night as I was on my hands and knees scrubbing our living room floor. How did I get from Murphy’s Oil Soap and a scrub brush to abstract expressionism? Because of all the little paint drips here and there on our hardwood floor. I’d never noticed how many there were before, but after getting up close and personal with the hardwood last night I realized there were a couple of spots that were hit pretty hard. We were very careful to put plastic down when we painted the LH, so I’m not sure how they got there. I’m blaming the cat.
Feline romping aside, my dilemma today is how to get the paint speckles off of my otherwise pristine hardwood. Any suggestions? I tried using Goo Gone, but that just seemed to strip up whatever coating was on the wood and left a light spot… but didn’t get up the paint.
Help! How do you remove year-old (or older) paint speckles from hardwood?
