What is the easiest way to refinish furniture?

Question by rutabaga: What is the easiest way to refinish furniture?
I bought new furniture appx. 6 years ago and it has been all but destroyed by my lovely children. Anyhow I am not a crafty or handy person, so I need to find out what would be the most straightforward way to refinish my cherry wood coffee table and dining room table? Any tips would be appreciated!

Answer by Brutally Honest
I'd recommend starting at the library or any home supply/building store. Look for a book series by Sunset or Home & Garden; they have how-to books on EVERYTHING.

Be warned: Furniture refinishing is not cheap, easy or quick. It takes a lot of work & patience. It may be that after you have done some research, you might find it easier to hire a local handyman to do it for you.
