I have a wooden kitchen table and a wooden windowsill that I would like
to refinish because they have losed most of the shine and I need to put
a coat of finish over their surface to protect them. Their condition
are not bad; therefore, I don't want to remove all the existing finish
and refinish them. I am thinking of putting a coat of the same finish
over the existing finish. Can I do that?
Based on the solvent-test using paint thinner, I believe the finish on
the kitchen table is varnish. Can I simply rub a coat of varnish over
the surface? Do I need to sand the surface first?
Based on the solvent-test using lacquer thinner, I believe the finish
on the windowsill is lacquer. Can I simply rub a coat of lacquer over
the surface? Do I need to sand the surface first? I hope that I don't
need to sand the surface; otherwise, I will need to re-stain the whole
Thanks in advance for any info.
