My husband is cutting our dresser and armoire to a smaller size to fit into our bedroom. The dresser was 8 ft 2 inches and 500 pounds heavy. He has it down to size now…56 inches wide.

He has sanded it down, put a liquid sand paper on it..sanded it more…and now has 2 coats of Rez on it. We plan to paint it a white enamel.

Question: Is there a specific enamel we should use? How many coats to use? Sand in between coats?

Question: What would you recommend to seal the enamel? Varnish? Polyurethane?

I’m posting pics of it under projects…Danette Smith

Thank you…Danette

Danette, I am surprised nobody has responded. Why don’t you put it in as a blog. I think it is more likely to get noticed there. that is if you don’t have an answer yet.
