Refinishing Used Furniture Tips

Oftentimes in your search for good used furniture you'll encounter a strikingly beautiful chest, rocking chair, or other item that could be even more strikingly beautiful if the object weren't painted algae green or mud brown. When this happens, don't pass the piece up . . . instead, buy it and refinish it. Afterwards, you'll have an item that's much more valuable — and much more marketable — than it would otherwise have been.

[3] No. 2 steel wool and cotton rags.
