I bought a dresser from someone who refinishes furniture on the side. They use and highly recommend General Finishes paint. Unfortunately, on two of the sides, it looks like they either missed a coat, or just were sloppy - it looks like they missed some spots. They sanded, primed and then used the antique white milk paint they make. They said the company doesn't recommend a top coat for dressers, so what they did was mix half and half the milk paint and the high performance polyurethane water based topcoat they make for the last coat on the sides.
The questions I have is:
If I want to put another coat of just the antique white milk paint on those not fully done sides, do I need to sand to bare wood, or can I just lightly sand and use the milk paint only?
Thanks for any help. This is a gift for my daughter, and I want it to look its best.
