Re: Help with tired interior

Thanks all. I don't think I will be replacing veneer. Mine is at least real veneer versus the glued on film. I am thinking more along the lines of light sand and then Minwax wipe on poly in either satin or gloss. My concern is sanding creating any unevenness in terms of color. Or more accurately said, the galley already has some unevenness which I fear will only be exacerbated by more Sanding unless I take it all the way back to bare wood and build color again.

That and I am considering adding some limited use of white or some other light colored paint. I would think the bulkhead beside the galley a good candidate for paint as it is most stained. Sort of like an accent wall in a house. In that case I would play off the cushions which will be blue striped material. But I have seen little support here for painting over actual wood. :-)
