Can cedar furniture be painted? It is common to see sealed or just stained cedar wood, but jobs such as a birdhouse or rehabbing an antique cedar chest may need to be painted. Don’t fear, if the paint is applied correctly it will be a success and the wood’s natural smoothness will give it a polished finish.
How do you refresh an old cedar chest? Just take a 220-grit sandpaper and lightly sand the inside of the chest. The interior is unfinished so you can easily do that. Just make sure that you sand in the direction of the grain. A fine sandpaper sanded in the direction of the gain will work wonders to restore the aroma of a chest!
