Stripping for very first time
Hi, I've decided to strip my oak dining room set and I'd like to stain it in a darker stain. The set is solid oak. It seems like there's only stain on it so I lightly sanded a portion of it, and whatever finish was on there came right off.
I've never stripped anything before so if anyone can tell me how to and what to buy to do it, I'd appreciate it very much.
I saw something called Citrus-strip or something like that in HD. Can I use that? It sounds a little less toxic and smelly than other strippers. Can I use that in the house with the windows open?
What color stain would be best to go over oak? I don't want oak again but I don't like the really dark colors like mahogany. Any suggestions? Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated..
