I've been working on the entertainment center I my spare time, it is going to be a time consuming process, but one I love doing.
First thing I had to do was to fill all the nail holes
There were many
After the nail holes dried, I sanded the whole thing down, inside and out. With the exception of two old doors, the whole thing was built with new wood so I needed to soften the edges
Then I had to vacuum the whole thing down, inside and out.
Next step was to cover all the knot holes with Kilz primer, so they don't bleed through all of the layers of paint that's going on this thing.
I'm going to put three coats of primer on the knots just to make sure there is no bleed through.
So far so good!
