Learn how to revive an old dresser by painting a colorful landscape design.
Mix black acrylic paint and white gesso to create a gray primer. Gesso is a traditional primer for furniture that adheres well to wood and self-levels for a smooth surface. Paint the entire piece with a solid, smooth layer of the mixture.
When the gesso is dry, paint the first color; we used Sherwin-Williams Tupelo Green. Apply the color on all the legs and onto the dresser about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way up. Feather the top edge to soften the transition between colors.
