How to sand your furniture perfectly

Want to get that piece of wooden furniture ultra smooth? Learn how to sand like a professional with this sanding project.

What you will need:

  • Varying grits of sandpaper – we recommend 100 grit, 220 grit and a 400 grit.


  1. Clean your desired piece of furniture with a damp cloth and some soap. Wipe dry.
  2. In a circular motion start sanding the furniture with the 100 grit paper.
  3. Wipe the dust off and repeat with the 220 grit paper.
  4. Wipe the dust off again and this time use the 400 grit sandpaper – which will give you the smoothest finish.
  5. Wipe with dust and varish or paint as desired.
