We found this old dresser at a secondhand shop. We gave it a fresh coat of white paint then painted a Moroccan-inspired design on the drawer faces.
old wood dresser
paintbrushes of various sizes
2 colors of paint (we used Benjamin Moore's Skydive and Avalon Teal)
sanding block and sandpaper
small patterned stencil
Remove drawer pulls and hardware. Use sandpaper (going with the grain) to remove the top layer of finish. Make sure to sand all the corners and crevices. This will help the new paint adhere better. After sanding, wipe down the dresser with a damp rag to clean off the dust and debris.
