Hello all! I have been inspired by la la laurrenn's fabulous bookcase and I have purchased most of the supplies to build something very similar.
The trouble is, I have never attempted a project of this magnitude and have no idea how to go about sanding and painting it. What kind of sander to buy, paper to use etc. Also, I have heard that you must sand "with the grain" of the wood, but I'm not sure I even know what that means.
I wanted the finished product to be white and was planning on using a spray paint. Is this a bad idea? Should I just use regular paint? Do I need to seal the wood first?
I'm sorry for the bombardment of questions but I really am clueless. Any hints or suggestions would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
