add floetrol by sherwin williams to your paint when painting furniture or cabinets and it will take away all of those brush stroke marks and leave the paint smooth. I have some furniture that I am going to restore for our new house .
The only way you will get me in an ocean or a lake. magicswim- an inflatable pool for boating (tiny holes in the bottom so lake/ocean water fills the pool without the seaweed, fish, etc. This would be awesome at the lake!
