HACKY MONDAYS – SAND WOOD WITH A DECK OF CARDS

Here’s an upcycling* hack for furniture lovers.  If you have dragged a sad little chair off the street to revive it with some paint, you’ll need to sand it first. The easiest way to sand a curved surface is to use a deck of cards as your sanding block so you can work with the curve of the furniture.

We do life hacks every Monday, have you got a good one?

*The term ‘upcycle’ is one of my most hated words (along with mumpreneur, moist and coin-purse – bleaugh!). It reminds me of bottle-top art in youth hostels.
