Dear Future Me-
Next time you decide to completely sand down and refinish something, count how many spindles it has. If the count totals more than three, step away slowly. You should have learned your lesson with that blasted high chair with its 18 spindles.
I've been working on this high chair for four weekends straight. Stripping, sanding, sanding, sanding, staining, polyurethaning, sanding, polyurethaning....sheesh.
