Default color change

A question for the group. I have some book cases that were stained and
finished with a lacquer top coat. Is there a way to change this color
without striping and sanding. The material is oak veneer ply. Any
advice would be appreciated.

Thanks
Jim

Sure, spray paint.

If you want to go darker, apply a tinted lacquer. If you want to go
lighter, that's another story.

Gee, I should have mentioned that I have an HVLP, which allows for
perfect applications of tinted topcoats. don't try it at home with a
brush.
