I am fairly new to woodworking and just took on a big project. I recently purchased a used 100 gal. aquarium with a pine and oak stand and canopy. The stand and canopy are painted black (but very poorly). I am trying to achieve that "wet black laquer look" like you find on piano's and high-end speakers. I would appreciate any step by step advice on what I actually need to do. I started to sand down the old paint to bare wood but learned that it is easier to first strip the paint using a stripper or paint remover.
If someone could tell me if I need to sand the wood totally smooth and then what paint/primer/lacquer to apply that would be vry helpful. The guys at the ********** did not seem to know too much about this as they tried to sell me "Spray Paint"
Thanks for the help guys.....Dennis
