This dresser was in really good shape to start with so it made for an easy makeover. To see the steps on how to paint furniture so our post How To Paint Furniture
We used Benjamin Moore Low Luster Wood and Metal Black paint.
This is the best black paint I’ve used so far and it gives the dresser a very elegant finish. When I sprayed it in my air sprayer, it came out in chunks (I think it wasn’t watered down enough). Because of that I had to go ahead and use a paint brush to paint the whole thing.
I liked the looks of the knobs, but I am not a brass lover. We spray painted each knob using Rustoleum’s hammered bronze spray paint on all of them. Then I lightly distressed the edges using 120 grit sand paper. Last step, I sealed it with Polycrylic .
