We need some help with this, hopefully someone can shed some light. We jumped into stripping this built-in, and now aren't quite sure how to proceed. One side was covered in a hideous 2-layer paint technique, and the other in a dark varnish or lacquer - I don't know which. Most of it has been stripped though we still have some detail work to do.
The question is: How do we proceed? We don't necessarily want to completely re-surface the entire piece with sanding - we really wanted the paint technique and sickening dark lacquer/varnish off. Once all that is off, do we apply an oil product?
This probably sounds really dumb to those of you who know what you're doing, but I really appreciate the help!!
I'd post pics, but since I'm new I'm not allowed!
