great tutorial on how to refinish old wood furniture. it is WAY easier than i thought! http://www.jonpeters.com/ I recently refinished a Mahogany writing desk, I used Zip Strip to remove the old finish.
Stain the dresser, deliberately create an aged effect by wiping stain on and then off until achieving exactly the look desired. Adding glass knobs from Anthropologie and old metal casters helped finalize the vintage look for this piece.
Pinner says: Where was this 2 weeks ago! Doug spent like 8 hours sanding our dining room table so that I could stain it...Extremely easy how to strip and restrain how-to... I am convinced that stripping is easier than painting now!
