We bought this old dresser for just $40. It had good bones but a bad paint job. With a vibrant coat of paint and a little floral detail, we brought it back to life in a fun, retro style.
old wood dresser (with knobs)
paintbrushes in a variety of sizes
paint (we used Benjamin Moore Peruvian Chili)
3 to 4 white paint pens (wide tip)
sandpaper and a sanding block
about 12 mini wood craft spoons (like old ice cream spoons)
Remove drawer pulls and hardware. Use sandpaper (going with the grain) to remove the top layer of finish. 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.
