Q: I recently bought a faux bamboo nightstand (think Henry Link furniture). It is currently a cream/yellowish color and I would like to lacquer it white. I'm unfamiliar with the differences between lacquer and regular painting and I would also like some tips on DIY lacquer. If I decide not to go the DIY route, where can I get a piece like this done in Boston?

Editor: Lacquer generally requires multiple layers of finish — you might just want a high-gloss painted surface.
Who has advice for Mekea?
