I don't really mind sanding it but Dp is convinced that i have to basically take off all of the varnish with the sand paper, which will take ages! Can i just roughen it up so to speak so that the paint has something to cling to?
Good idea i will go and have a look at yell.com now! If i could afford it i would love someone to do the whole job for me. I'm not great at painting furniture. I tell myself that i'm going to enjoy it and loose the will to live after a couple of days of different coats.
