1. Wash the boards thoroughly and sand the surfaces with a sanding sponge to smooth out the wood.
2. Prime your boards to ensure a smooth finish. Use Sherwin-Williams Multi-Purpose Latex Primer for your boards, and remember to give the paint a good stir before pouring it into a tray. We used white straight from the can for our primer.
Tip: For best results, remove the tape while the second coat is still tacky. If you decide to remove the tape after the paint has dried, you may want to use a craft knife and a straight edge to score the line before pulling the tape.
6. Let the boards dry overnight, then grab some friends and toss some bags!
Always clean your brushes for future use. Learn how to properly store and dispose of paint here.
