Use a larger paintbrush to paint the entire dresser. Let it dry completely, then apply a second coat of paint. We painted our dresser all white; you can also paint the sides and top one of the colors of the pattern.
Plan the pattern for the drawer fronts. You may want to draw it on paper first. Use painter's tape to mark out the pattern on the drawers. For our pattern, we measured about an inch down from the top of the drawer and placed a piece of painter's tape horizontally across the drawer. Then we measured up one inch from the bottom of the drawer and placed another piece of tape the length of the drawer making sure we had equal white space above and below each band of tape.
Use a tape measure to find the center point of the drawer. Working from there, create alternating Xs and diamonds on the drawer face. We did three Xs and two diamonds. Make sure each space is equal size.
