A ROSIE TIP OF THE WEEK:


TIPS from Rosie’s… Sanding is an important step to refinishing furniture, but what type do I use??? The sandpaper aisle offers many grades of sandpaper. The lower the number, the more coarse the sandpaper is, which means it will remove the most material during each pass but also leave a rougher surface. A high number sandpaper will remove less material but give you more control. It will also leave you with a smoother wood surface. You really need only three kinds: 120 grit as a medium do-everything sandpaper, 80 grit when he really wants to do some shaping or needs to remove a lot of material, and 220 grit for fine sanding between coats of polyurethane so each coat can bond to the next. Always sand with the grain of the wood, making long, light, even strokes with a padded sanding block. Happy painting!
