Learn how to revive an old dresser by painting a colorful landscape design.
Tear a large piece of poster board, creating a jagged, sort-of-mountainous edge.
Place the jagged edge of the poster board against the dresser, just below the feathered area of the first color. This will create the first landscape ridgeline.
With a small roller, paint the second color (Secret Garden). Roll from the poster board onto the dresser. Slide the poster board over, line it up with the first section and repeat the steps, creating a ridgeline along the front and sides of the dresser. With a square paintbrush, paint lightly over the rolled area to smooth out the surface and continue a little farther up the dresser, feathering out the top of the section as you go along. Paint right over any carved or decorative details as if they weren’t there, then use an artist's brush to tidy up the paint for a clean and even coat of color.
