A New Trick

29 Apr

The more I get into this furniture painting fad the more I realize there are some really handy tools and products out there that make things ¬†little easier. I most recently discover the magic of wood filler. I am such a novice I didn’t even know it existed till recently and it’s a game changer! First it’s not that expensive and a little bit goes a long way! I most recently used it on a little pedestal table that had a few scratches on the surface and the wood detailing around the table’s edge had some holes in it.

I used Elmer’s wood filler, so far it has worked well it dries fast and sands really smooth. (I feel like I am in a commercial, I swear they did not tell me to say that! :))
