Sanding is Key!

A very important tip in my opinion, is the sanding step. Sanding is the “ta-da” moment when all of the fabulous Saltwash® layers are revealed so this is a really important step. To really create the authentic look, you want to think “how would this piece or surface naturally wear over time”, and maybe give a little extra attention with the sander in this area. For instance, on the top of a dresser by the front edge you can imagine that it would get more worn over time from possible hands or items rubbing over it and wearing away at it. The same could be imagined around door knobs , drawer pulls or the corners of a piece, where it would get a lot of natural distressing from being pulled at and possibly bumped into over the years.
