From the blogger: "I chose to paint because though this dresser was beautiful it was veneer and the veneer was in pretty bad shape after living in my grandma's attic for fifty years!"

Instructions

How to Refinish a Dresser

  1. Clean piece well before starting.

  2. Hand sand with fine grit sandpaper entire surface.

  3. Paint several coats waiting for each coat to fully dry and lightly sand between coats (used spray paint but brush on paint would be fine).

  4. Seal completely with a brush. I did three coats of a gloss poly acrylic lightly hand sanding between the last two coats.

  5. Add your new hardware and you're done!

Paint really can rescue old furniture. I have painted many pieces that have nice bones, but surface damage that really can't be repaired. I love the curvy arms on the mirror of this dresser and am glad that it was rescued, especially because it was her grandmother's. I love the glass knobs too, they really look nice on a black dresser. Great job.
