We found this old dresser at a re-sale shop, painted stripes on it, then added bold flowers to give it a burst of color.
hand sander with fine-grit sandpaper
old wood dresser (with knobs)
paintbrushes and rags
two colors of paint
clear sealer (spray or brush-on)
Remove the drawer pulls and hardware from the dresser. Hand sand or use a palm sander with fine-grit sandpaper (going with the grain) to remove the dresser's top layer of finish.
Use steel wool to get in the corners and details. Wipe down the dresser with a damp rag to remove all the dust and dirt. Let it dry thoroughly.
