Need help with furniture finishes--esp. wax

8 years ago

I have an antique buffet that I have stripped, sanded and stained a very dark brown. It's just going to sit in my dining room to look pretty...not much actual use. I used Minwax Finishing Paste Wax on the top and ends. It appears to be a little dull-looking in the not-so-smooth areas and I fear it will really whiten over time. In my online hunt for help, I found that I could have ordered a dark tinted wax instead of the natural that I used. Before I screw it all up...can I apply the dark wax over the natural? Or should I remove the wax and just use a wipe-on poly (or something else) instead?
