Re: Is this shellac? Can this be restored by an amateur?

Hi Thanks for your advice. I tried wetting the surface of the damaged wood and it shows that the rest of the wood has been stained. It is beyond me to match stain colours so I am selling the piece as is and hopefully the buyer can fix it or just live with it as is. Many thanks for your help. Margaret

Is this shellac? Can this be restored by an amateur?

Hi all, This nice piece was in my young daughters room for a number of years. When I cleared all the junk off it to move it I saw how much damage has been done, particularly where she has tipped something over and completely removed the finishing. I have no idea how old the piece is as I found it on...
