We can definitely see where the old window seat had been. There is some sort of spackling or plaster-type residue that the silent paint remover doesn’t really heat up well to strip off. I’m going to treat it with mineral spirits and boiled linseed oil overnight and hopefully tomorrow it will be softened up enough.
There was also a detail of what the old plate rail molding looked like from its profile that was also imprinted in the built in. I’m SO mad this was removed. WHY!?!
The baseboard is also completely unfinished fir, which must have been put up once the window seat was removed.
I ordered some more special scrapers to help with stripping some of the detailed trim. I hope they come soon. :)
