I've recently bought some pine furniture which is well built and solid but needs a bit of TLC.
It is also finished with something that gives it a kind of 'orangey' colour. It has some scratches and I much prefer the more natural, paler colour underneath. So I want to remove the finish.
My question is thus three-fold I guess:
- What do you think the varnish/lacquer/coating is?
- Can I remove it and if so, how?
- What would you recommend as a natural coating to protect it but keep the 'natural' colour of the wood?
