It’s in the bag

Need a use for all the brown paper bags leftover from your New Year’s Eve party?


They make great burnishers to take the rough bits off of a milk painted surface. This is a tip I picked up from the Chris Schwartz Popular Woodworking blog a while back, (thanks Chris) but having finally tried it for myself, I can say from experience that they’re certainly better than any commercially available sanding products I’ve tried.
