Paint

Used a roller meant for semismooth surfaces on pine and don't know how to fix! Shed all over!

My husband and I painted a pine dresser top using a roller that was meant for semi-smooth surfaces, by accident. Now one side is finished perfectly (used rustoleum oil paint in glossy white) and the other has little hairs everywhere. Of course it dried like that. How do we fix it? Can we sand down and re-paint?

Megsnead,

 

You should be able to sand out the roller fuzz with little difficulty. Fortunately, oil aint sands well. It should dust up when sanded and the embedded fuzz should disappear. For rolling of furniture and other fine finishes, try the foam trim rollers. They lay out a nice even finish and cannot leave fuzz.

 

Hope this has helped.
