Loooong time ago we bought an unfinished table from Home Depot. I painted the pedestal and spokes and got as far as two coats of clear varnish on the top and other pieces.
It's been sitting for a couple of years and I've never assembled it (wanted to put at least five layers of varnish on the top to protect it from the kids)
I'd like to "refinish" it--remove the paint and re-varnish it in Cherry. Is it too late?
Can I continue with the varnishing of the top--but in a cherry stained varnish? Or will that not work because of the two thin coats already on it?
What do you tink? Do I need to strip back to bear wood--or can I take a shortcut?
