Over the years, furniture tends to get dinged up and the stained finish damaged. This is usually due to normal wear and tear from daily life. If the stained finish is badly damaged it may need refinishing. But a lot of times a simple cleaning and waxing to restore the finish is all that’s needed. You can do that yourself!
Select an area of the furniture piece to paint, such as a drawer or table top, to provide contrast and give the piece a modern look.
