    please don't paint/wreck it. fine wood needs to be appreciated... Many furniture refinishing and revitalizing enthusiasts and experts are against refinishing wooden furniture for fear that it will reduce the piece’s monetary value. However, the other camp of furniture restoration hobbyists and pros will argue that refinishing furniture extends the piece’s longevity. They feel that if your purpose isn’t to obtain a monetary return on your investment in the piece, then restoring and refinishing a piece allows you to get more use out of it long-term.

    If you’re wondering what signs you should look for when deciding to refinish antique furniture or if you should restore it at all, there are some initial considerations to look at. The first step should be to look at the unique piece and determine whether it’s worth undertaking a restoration project or not.

      Chalk paint seems to expensive for me so regular paint will be our choice. I also have an old tea cart that I will repaint too. Prolly same color.

    It’s not antique and it’s not high quality. Just my Grandmas old sideboard that has been in my parents garage for 30 years covered up with a sheet. The tea cart is antique and needs an new paint job to match sideboard.
