Hello everybody, I have just bought dining chairs that were sold by Superstore/Loblaws. The chairs look like this:
I love the chair style and will be doing some work on the upholstery. However, I do not like the colour of the wood - it is a honey-ish colour. I would prefer a dark mahogany colour.
The chair frame is definitely made of wood. The legs are smooth to the touch, which leads me to think there is some varnish/lacquer on them, but the grain is not very distinctive. I tried sanding a bit of the wood but all I got was a rough patch and a slightly lighter colour. Is this what I should expect?
Do you guys think I can restain the legs? How would I do this? or is painting an option?
Thanks in advance for your help!
