ikea says it can not be painted or stained because it has a lacquer already

U could lightly sand & paint....to stain u would have to strip the laquer completely...a time & labor intensive job.

Thanks for the information. To strip the lacquer, what would you use? Could you sand the finish off?

U would have to strip & then sand....a lot of work for an inexpensive pine piece. Pine can also take stain irregularly. I think you will be more pleased with a paint job.

Can you recommend a paint color? My furniture is dark brown, and I am looking for ideas. Thank you for your help!!!

Could you tease out a color from curtains, rug, or linens?
