Refinishing Oak Cabinet
Hi. I have a glass door/oak frame display cabinet that is finished in a light/straw color. I don't know if it is poly or not, but it is a satin finish. We bought it from a Home Goods store some years ago. I have some new office furniture that is more of a dark cherry finish and I'd like to stain the oak dark to fit in better. I don't need a perfect match, not that I could get one anyway. Can I give a light sanding to the existing finish and then stain over with a dark stain, or do I need to completely strip down the existing finish to bare wood?
Thanks for any help.
