I want to change the color of my entertainment center.

15 years ago

We have a 5 piece entertainment center that is the traditional golden oak stain. I really want to paint it black, but DH disagrees. He will go for a darker stain though. The doors and moldings are solid wood, but the shelves I believe are laminated and the back is just a masonite like board w/ a wood grain look.

Would I have to sand everything down and then just apply a darker stain and then varnish? Will the shelving and back take stain if it's not solid wood? I really don't want to mess this up....of course if I did then I could paint it:-)
