hi.........i've moved your post to the Furniture Refinishing forum. the pro's there can help you....

thanks for your question.

(P.S. they're going to ask you what your current furniture is made of, what the current finish is on it, you might go ahead & supply that info to get the ball rolling more quickly!)

If you can locate the finish that you want, you can apply it to your furniture. Clean the furniture thoroughly with mineral spirits to remove grease, grit, and grime. Prime with Zinsser 123, then apply the finish. It may take two coats for good coverage. Don't skimp on the quality of the finish paint or the brushes involved.
