I was going to say lots of rock and rolls but I'm not sure that's what you had in mind ;-)

If it's stained wood underneath use wire wool or fine sand paper

i'm in the process of doing this. i started with 200 grit sandpaper and just rubbed away (ha!) whilst watching tv.

i'll smooth it out with 100 grit, then apply a few coats of minwax (don't know if you have it over there.)

I use spaxwax it contains pumice power so it acts like a tee cut, and the higher the grit number is, the finer the finish will be, ie more grits in a square inch so they are smaller. I only polish from a 320 finish as it would leave cut lines in the finish,

Just some simple wet and dry paper , 5 min job

If you like the stain , apply a dab of olive oil to it

It will bring the colour back , less is more
