I have refinished furniture for YEARS. This is THE BEST stripper! After stripping all the old finish off, sand your piece, wipe down with denatured alcohol, stain with your favorite shade of MINWAX penetrating oil stain, and put on about three coats of MINWAX Poly. GLOSS poly is the most durable, so if you want a less glossy finish, first use GLOSS to get the durability, then do your next two coats in a SATIN finish.
