How to Strip and Stain Furniture
Here is a tutorial on how to strip your wood furniture and stain it to bring it back to life.
I found this piece on a local swap site and loved everything about it, but the color. I brought it home, took all the doors off, drawers out, and removed the hardware.
Using my favorite project, Citristrip and wearing gloves and goggles, I used a cheap paint brush to coat the surface. I worked in about a 2 ft by 2 ft space before moving on to the next. I would let it sit for about 30 minutes.
I used a metal scraper and an old coffee can to scrape up all the stain that bubbled up. Once it was done I used an after wash to clean off the rest of the surface.
After everything had dried, I used my favorite combination of stains, then followed up with a final coat of Polycrylic.
