Painted Bedroom Set Refinishing....

From Paint to Stain



Below,  we refinished a French style bedroom set that had been painted.

It can be hard to gauge how furniture that's been pained is going to come out? 

This one was factory painted, than painted again by the owner.

Factory painted furniture can be the most difficult to refinish, since they almost

always painted directly over the raw wood.  In this case, the customer hoped

for a honey tone, but was aware that it may have to go darker

depending on how well we could remove the paint.


Painted Dresser - Before Refinishing    Dresser Refinishing by The Restoration Studio LLC


Above: The triple dresser before and after stripping. We were pleased that it

stripped fairly clean, but it required a good deal of effort. We found the wood to

be Cherry.

Below:  The finished pieces. They turned out even better than we had expected,

and I was able to keep the finish fairly clear and light, just as the customer had hoped.
