Electric Hand sander

Paint brushes and roller


Paint color you wish to use



1.Remove the drawers and hardware from the dresser.

2. Use an electic hand sander on the dresser. Once the dresser has a rough feeling to it you can stop. Why? The priemer will stick better.

3. Wipe down all the dust from the sanding and begin to paint on the primer.

4. Once the primer is dried take whatever color you wish to paint your dresser and begin painting.

5. Once the paint is dry add another coat. 2 coats in total!

6. Finally rub on Polyurethane.

Try a new type of handle for your dresser. Check out the Katie Brown Collection at Cool Knobs and Pulls!
