Did this one today. Had two layers of thick paint. Required some razor blade work, two applications of paint remover and one round of Bon Ami porcelain cleaner. Oh, and lots and lots of elbow grease.

Even though it’s a lot of work, I always enjoy seeing how it looks under that ol’ paint when it’s all done.

I never understand why the original owners don't put in a little effort to do this.

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone. Can’t wait to do the next one, but I’m out of ‘dirty’ signs. Time to go hunting for some more.

I thinks the sellers of these kind of signs believe it’s shot.... if I can make a $, sell it! Not knowing how tuff porcelain is? Just my guess? Chris
