Re: Refinishing trim in old victorian
You failed to mention what type of wood is involved. Do you have all oak or is some oak and some cherry or is it all poplar?
Staining is done before finishes are applied so it would require stripping. You stain the wood not the finish.
IMHO you devalue the trim when you try to make walnut out of oak or cherry out of heart pine, plus you devalue the original design and intent .
