Working with your old furniture or thrift find always sounds like a challenging activity. And you need to do your best to get awesome results. Old things mean that they can be broken or damaged. Before you start doing anything, just make sure that they are in good condition. Use a wood filler if there are any chipped parts. Check for any nails or splinters peeking. For a smooth surface, you should sand your dresser.
When the surface is pretty smooth, then you can go to the next steps and prepare it for the process of painting. Remove all the drawers so you can paint everything evenly. Also, you should remove the knobs off the drawers. Even if you are a beginner, you can paint your dresser. You should ask for advice from the store where you will get the paint. Before you apply the paint, make sure that the surface is clean, so the paint layer will be nice and even. Use a mixture of soap and water and wipe down the surface. Clean with a wet cloth. Leave it to dry nicely.
Use a large brush to cover the surface. If your dresser has tiny details, you should use a small brush to cover these. Wait for the paint to dry completely. Then, add a second coat.
