How do I know what to do?
You are all so creative! I am very inspired by all the great ideas!
I was wondering how you know how to procede with the finishes that are already on the piece when you find it and how to apply a new finish?
I found a kitchen table that the finish is, I think, some kind of stain or shellack(Iam not sure) and I was thinking I wanted to stain the top after sanding and then paint the legs and chairs a country cranberry color.
How do I know how to prep the surface? Do I prime? Do I strip off the old finish? Could I just paint right over?
