archway-x.jpg

So I bought this 105 year old house. Its still got trim up from I am assuming the early 70's or earlier. Its all really wide and thick trim. They have been painted over atleast two or three times with white paint. It looks good and has a clean modern look, my wife and I prefer that dark chestnut wood stain you find in old homes. I got two floors of this trim/baseboard, about 6 doorways, and two large archways. It would be a big, messy, and tedious task.

What I want to know is how long wood it taketo strip paint, sand, stain, seal. Keep in mind I got kids too. I dont want to go balls to the wall and affect the air quality in the home. I was thinking one archway a week.

Would it be worth doing? Any ideas on cost?
>>
OP here. One lther question would be, for a task like this, something that is easily noticeable to the eye. Is it worth spending the money on a pro rather than slugging it out yourself?
