Answered
I am refurbishing a rolling kitchen island and it was painted with a latex paint. I chose to sand it off due to the multiple layers. I knew that it was pine wood very sturdy and beautiful. I wanted to stain it to match my chair rails in the kitchen. I am very inexperienced with staining matter of fact my rails are too dark. Any suggestions?
