redoing a coffee table
I purchased a pine two drawer coffee table at a garage sale on Sat. for $1.00. It is a honey colored table but the top and the legs are in a very scratched condition. Should I remove all the finish and restain using Polyshades miniwax after I sand the top? Is removing the finish all over an awful job that will take forever? Should I maybe just refinish the top and paint the bottom.
All the wood furniture in the den is dark so I what do you suggest is a good color to stain the coffee table that is not black but yet dark. Is poly shades the best stain for this purpose? You can see I have never done this before and any advice would be appreciated.
