Gel stain for this chair or paint?
I have this old chair which I have owned for 30 odd years in my basement . I finally asked my seamstress to make me new cushions with the intention of re-stainng or painting this chair.
Well, time passed and I got discouraged because when I started to work on this chair it was one of the hardest stains to remove or strip. No matter what I try it does not budge ,besides, the finish looks bland , no grain markings at all. So here I am with the new cushions done in a fabric I love but the chair still a mess.
Seeing another thread here on gel stains got me wondering, do you think if I got some of this general gel stains I could just put it on the chair in a dark color or should I paint.
