INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Remove the hardware from the drawer. Fill the holes and any damage on the dresser with Clear Modeling Paste; let dry; and sand down.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Remove the drawers from the dresser. Paint the frame of the dresser with Colonial. Let the first application dry completely, then add a second layer of paint.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Paint the dresser drawers with alternating colors: I painted two with Everlasting and one with Colonial. When the paint on the drawers has dried, place the drawers back into the dresser frame.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use stencil tape to position the Americana Decor Wildflowers stencil on the dresser. With a stencil brush, add Bestow over the stencil. Remove and clean the stencil when done, and let the paint on the dresser dry completely.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Use Clear Crème Wax to finish and protect the painted surface. 
    Step 4 Example
  6. Drill holes into the drawers to add new drawer pulls onto the dresser.
