Hand sand/restain this cabinet
My bathroom vanity has seen better days. I don't want to replace it, because aside from the stain it is in good shape. The stain is fading in some spots, and just looks blah overall. I'd like to restain and change the hardware.
I'd like it to be a little darker than it is now. I've read a few articles about how you can just hand sand to roughen it up, and then stain to acheive something like that. This certainly sounds easier than stripping off all of the existing stain. Does it sound easier because it's not a good idea? Can I do that? If so, can anyone recommend what I'd need?
