    Default Staining Furniture?

    Hi. I received some chairs from freecycle that are nice, sturdy and attractive
    but completely the wrong color. I would like to change the color. Problem is,
    I have no clue LOL!

    They need to go from an orangy-oaky color to a dark mahoganny. Do they need to
    be completely stripped or can you sand them and stain over? Any really good
    products or techniques you can recommend for beginners?


    Thanks so much!

    If you are talking staining I believe you would have to completing strip them
    down. You could always try a mahogany colored paint. Would not be as nice as
    stain but would probably still work

    I think, if they are stained right now, you can stain over them. I
    would recommend you go to Lowes or Home Depot and ask someone, I have
    found them to be pretty knowledgeable.

    depends on the finish/varnish on the wood -- I would test an inconspicious spot
    and got from there.
