FUrniture Stripping....


I have an entertianment center (3 piece's about 8ft long by 7ft high). 1 is a bookcase with doors on the bottom, 1 for the TV with door's on top and bottom and 1 is glass door's on top with shelves and door's on the bottom.

It is Oak right now and is white washed. I want to have it stripped and restained a dark color.

Any idea of what a cost would be for this or who to call?

Call a furniture refinisher. You should be able to find "refinishers" in your phone book.

let's us know how much... I just has a little experience of staining... finding it is a hell of work... wouldn't be surprise it is as expensive as the cost of the wood itself....

Actually, professionally refinishing is suprisingly cheap. They'll chemically strip it, put it in a ventilated spray booth, and spray finish it.

Probably cost in the hundreds of dollars. Very hard to say, not seeing the piece (or doing that kind of work myself). But I'm always suprised at how economical professional refinishing is. It's very different from hand-finishing of an individual piece, or doing work on-site. Once a skilled operator with a pressure pot spray gun is on the job, it's a completely different matter.
