I recently painted the trim around my front door with white oil-based paint. During the process, I lost my balance and turned over the can of paint on my porch, which is peagravel. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove this? I figure it will be more involved than most paint removal jobs because of the texture of the peagravel. Please help!
If this is pea gravel set in concrete you can use lacquer thinner to remove the oil based paint and you may need to use a wire brush to get all the paint up in addition to rags.
My suggestion would be to rent a pressure washer. This is the only method I've found will remove paint from concrete completely. It should come off pretty well if the pea gravel is set in concrete and if it's the type applied with epoxy then it will come off even easier.
