I bought a 2nd hand small lamp table. I think it's pine but has been stained a dark oak shade. Is there anyway of restoring it to pine?
Thanks!

Hmm... That's a real head-scratcher. The thing is that woodstain is normally applied to bare wood and the very thin stain sinks into the naked pine to quite a depth. You might need to sand about 3mm off the entire lamp.

Try sanding a small area first - you have nothing to lose. Some stains don't penetrate as far you might think. If sanding doesn't work, you could paint it with Chalk Paint, Eggshell etc

It just bothers me that anyone thinks that they or the government have the right to tell me what I can put in my own body. more
