Refreshing Wood Veneer?

Does anyone know if it is possible to refresh wood veneer? I have a lovely old table but the top has had much use over the years and the veneer looks terrible. The top has been varnished as well. Can I gently sand the top and then re-stain and re-varnish? Any help or advice would be appreciated.


Thank you,

Yes, you can refinish wood veneer. You just have to be a little more gentle than if it were solid wood. Do not let any water sit on it if you use a refinisher because it will lift the veneer. Do not sand very deep either, especially if the veneer is really thin. I have done many veneer pieces with no problems. Hope this helps.
