i live in a converted factory loft in brooklyn. the loft's concrete pillars and ceilings were not entirely stripped of layers of paint. because the layers of paint have created a thick coating, a small, handheld paint tool simply won't live up to the task.

can anyone recommend an inexpensive, power tool that will quickly (or easily) buff away/sand/remove the paint layer? much of the paint layer is already cracked and small chips of paint continue to fall off.

help! i just to be able to repaint what could be a gorgeous room.

Even if you could sand off the paint you would not want to because of the potential for lead paint being on that pillar.

You need to look into using on of the Peel Away products on this as they are used for removing lead paint all over the country. Check it out on the web or at a local paint store.
