In Response To: Refinishing Nightmare ... HELP! (Valerie)

Dear Ms. Valerie,

Sorry to hear about your nightmare. It makes you sick to see a piece of furniture with potential turn out so bad, especially with a price. I would like to help. If you have the patience and are willing to do the job right, it probably won't take you more than a few hours to strip. That all depends though on whether or not the piece has extensive carvings or structural damage. If the finish is fairly new it should come of with ease. The only major problem is getting the finish back to a light color. No doubt the black laq accompanied by its dark stain penetrated the wood. If you are interested in a professional opinion, please feel free to contact me. I'm always up to a challenge and could use the work.
