Wood Chest Renovation Answered
I have a wooden chest that I was asked to restore. The chest is made of what appears normal pine, but it was painted over with a dark paint. The owner asked me to try and restore it to the original wood. My question is:
1. Obviously I would have to sand it, but what grit of sand paper do I use to get rid of the paint and to get the smooth surface?
2. What would be the best application after sanding, oil or varnish? The client is not a fan of a gloss finish so what would be the best option?
