Sharing a small space can be tough – avoid conflicts by identifying storage compartments with these clever plywood people figures – customize them to your needs.
flat-panel cabinet, armoire or dresser
1x3 trim to border the cabinet doors
3/4" paint-grade plywood
spray paint with a spray-can handle
semigloss latex paint and paint tray
paint roller and a roller sleeve
electric sander with extra sanding pads
drill with wood screws
caulk gun with liquid bonding adhesive
safety goggles and a dusk mask
When choosing the proper piece, focus on cabinets, chests of drawers and dressers with flat-panel doors.
If necessary, use an electric sander to remove the existing finish. When you get it smoothed out, wipe off the dust and residue with a damp cloth.
Using paint roller and roller sleeve, add a coat of stain-blocking primer to interior and exterior of the cabinet. Tinted stain-blocking primer (which often comes in gray or brown tones) will ensure that imperfections or wood knots will not show through the newly painted finish.
