  • Sander

  • Pink paint

  • Top coat

  • Drawer knobs

  • Paint roller

  • Paintbrush


1. Start by cleaning the farmhouse dresser with water to remove any dirt or dust.

2. Use the sander to give the dresser an allover scuff sand to remove any glossiness and make the paint adhere better. Use a cloth to remove any wood shavings.

3. Paint the dresser, using the paint roller for long, smooth surfaces and the paintbrush for corners and edges.

4. Once the paint is dry, apply the top coat in the same way. Apply additional coats for a glossier finish.

5. Install drawer pulls to all of the drawers.
