Lost & Found Decor
I gave the whole piece a very quick once over with 120 grit sandpaper. Super duper quick; just enough to open up that surface.
The last bit of prep I did before starting to paint was to rub the edges of the piece with one of Fusion’s Beeswax Blocks.
One coat is still pretty streaky and lots of the dark wood tone still shows through.
I did end up going with three coats to get the complete, matte coverage I wanted. I finish sanded the whole piece with a fine, 320 grit sandpaper
