We have an antique sideboard-buffet(walnut)that we are converting into our bathroom sink. We have decided to strip it ourselves (have never done before). Without my knowledge, my husband rubbed a spot w/straight acetone and it seemed to work fine. The finish underneath is so beautiful we will probably forgoe staining it. From what we have learned about stripping, it is such a messy and time consuming job, not to mention working with the dangerous chemicals, he feels that we could acetone the whole thing. I seem to think if it were that simple, I would be able to find it as a recommendation in my on-line skill searching. Are we missing something? Also, what should we seal it with since it will searve as a sink?
