|Comment||Eileen, Thank you so much for your answer - it greatly helps. I was afraid I had done something wrong or used the wrong product in the stripping process. All I can say is wow - this endeavor of mine has been a labor intensive process. Now I have a much greater appreciation for the cost of refinished items. I also see why so many times items get painted...although I still argue that you cannot beat the beauty of natural wood. Again, thanks so much. Kris|
Answers by Expert:
Hi..I can answer most questions about the repairing,stripping and refinishing of all your old furniture and wood items(the things we call antiques)I can give advice about what to buy/avoid at auctions/flea markets. I do not give appraisals on antiques.
I have been refinishing antiques for the past 30yrs. While I have taken several courses over the years,I have found that "hands on" learning is the best teacher. Perhaps I can help you avoid some of the mistakes I made while learning.
