The key to this project is knowing what type of finish is currently on these pieces of furniture
If it's a varnish or paint you are looking to remove then consider Paint Panther Paint and Varnish Remover from Barrettine. It's a highly effective paint and varnish remover that works in just minutes and removes most types of paint and varnish.
We always recommend doing a test area somewhere inconspicuous first to ensure there is no reaction or damage to the wood, before starting your project. This should be done on each piece of furniture.
If the furniture has been waxed then a wax and polish remover such as Woodleys Wax and Polish Remover or Liberon Wax and Polish Remover should be used. These products effectively strip off old or worn waxes or polishes to expose the bare wood underneath.
Alternatively, these pieces of furniture can be sanded but this can be messy and if coated with a pre 1970's paint, potentially dangerous. A light sanding can be done once the furniture has been stripped if required and prior to refinishing.
In terms of refinishing once stripped, this depends on the type of finish desired. We supply a wide range of wood oils, waxes, paints and varnishes that could be used to refinish these items. To get a better idea of the type of finish you would like and so that we can recommend some suitable products, please contact us so that one of our trained in-house experts can help you with this project.
