Walnut and White Credenza and an Unusual Use for a Brown Paper Bag.

This was a custom job. I used Minwax Antique Walnut stain and Benjamin Moore Linen White for the piece. A trick: use a brown paper bag to smooth down your newly stained surfaces. It has just enough grit to settle any areas that are slightly rough. I used the bag before applying the Varathane semi-gloss poly sealer.

    I used this trick between coats of paint on my woodwork. They are satin smooth. Easier to keep clean too.
