The utility sink in my house is disgusting. My wife wants me to pitch it and buy a new one. I hate those cheap plastic sinks and I was curious so I jumped online so see what they were selling for. I found a single basin going for $300.
My question is simple. is this worth cleaning up and keeping? The paint is oil based, so it took 10 minutes to remove a few square inches. It looks pretty nice underneath though. I'm not certain what type of metal it is. It doesn't seem to be rusting, so I was guessing bronze since it is quite dark.
Second question. If it is worth keeping I'm thinking I need to chemically strip this. I'm going to destroy my drill doing this. Any advice on how?
