That answer WAS really helpful.  My mother just gave me a dresser that has the same name burned inside the drawers, and I thought it was just a reproduction.  Condition is slightly damaged in quite a fewplaces because of chips in paint.  Someone painted it.  I was looking over it and wondering if I could somehow restore it.  Once something like this is painted, how damaging would it be to sand it and what would be the best way to sand it?
