Hi,
I just received 6 chairs and 2 of them someone put a shiny coat on them. And the others are like a satin to a semi gloss coat. Is there anyway that I could rub them down with something to dull the shine without having to strip the whole thing. I was thinking maybe laquar thinner or something like that. I would really appreicate any help with this. Thanks alot

I'm not really sure, BUT, I think you'd just have to put a clear coat of Satin poly. over them... :eek: :laughing:

You could try it, in some out of the way place, bottom of leg, etc., to see if it works.

Did you buy them? If so, make the seller make it good...

Let us know OK?

Boat makers usually use steel wool for cutting the shine from a finish. It works well to turn a gloss into a satin. Maybe 0000 wool would do the trick. Test it on a less visible portion of the leg (near the floor) or something to see if you like the results before doing the whole project.
