I’ve been lurking for a few months as I designed and built my first project with my dad, an oak platform bed.
It turned out great, but the jacobean stain doesn’t match the dresser at all (you can see the end of it in the 2nd pic) which is a really light color. I want to re-stain and finish the dresser instead of building a new one.
I still get really confused about laquer/varnish and other types of finishes so I’m not sure what to use to remove the old finish. What I can tell you is that my wife spilled a little bit of nail polish remover on the dresser top once (acetone) and when she wiped it off it wiped the finish right off too. What does that tell me about the type of finish and what should I use to remove it? Keep in mind I want to remove any stain as well.
Thanks in advance,
