Before and After Sanding
As you can see, I sanded the shoeshine box this morning. Using the 100 grit paper, the old stain came off much easier than I had anticipated. When I was finished with that, I took the 220 grit and sanded it to a nice smooth finish. The entire process took about 45 minutes.
Now it is ready to be stained. Before that, however, I am going to take a wet paper towel and wipe down any excess residue from the sanding that may be left. After that, I will be put on the first coat of stain, let it dry and then decide if it needs a second coat. Only time will tell.
Hopefully, I will get to the staining today as the weather is supposed to become hot and humid as the week progresses.
Here are some more pictures after the sanding was completed:
If you have any comments, they certainly would be appreciated!
