How do you remove silver enamel spray paint from wood?

I got a little over excited when doing some art and now there is silver spray paint all over the wooden floor. Is there an easy way to remove it? I tried nail varnish removed but it didn’t work.

It needs to have gone by the time my dad gets home…

    Thinner available at pharmacist can be used.
    You have to absorb the paint with cotton as it dissolves and is a slow process and may need repetition.

    If the floor is finished with varnish or similar try whatever solvent you have in a place where it wont show.
    If you have over spray try scraping with an old credit card, since acetone didn’t help try white spirit or turpentine which may help.
    Look on the tin of spray, and e-mail the manufacturers as a ‘damsel in distress’
    If you can’t remove it easily, be nice to Dad and own up before you make an accident a ruinous disaster, and promise, next time “I’ll spread a dustsheet before I start.”

    Step 1

    Sand the wood to bring it down to its natural state. If the spray paint is spotty, you will probably have to sand the entire fence so that it will be even. Wood left untreated will weather and you’ll see there you sanded if you don’t do the whole thing.

    Step 2

    Use a palm sander or orbital sander if you have a large area to sand. The fence should be stable enough for you to apply pressure and thick enough to withstand the loss of a layer of the wood to the sanding. You also may have to change the paper on the sander more often as the spray paint will clog the rough paper. Use sheets of sandpaper to get paint off inside of posts.

    Step 3

    Paint over the entire wood fence if it is older and you don’t require a natural wood look. This method is the easiest and most efficient way to remove the awkward spray paint. Use an outdoor weather primer before you apply the final coat of wood house paint to the fence.

    Step 4

    Rub spray painted pictures, graffiti or over spray with denatured alcohol or lacquer thinner. Apply the chemical to a rag and rub the area that has been painted. This method is best for spot removal and for paint that has not become too embedded in the wood grain.

    Step 5

    Purchase a special eco-friendly paint remover that is applied and washed off after sitting for a while
