I have been slowly changing out all the crappy Ikea dressers that have fallen apart in our house over the last few years. I am finding that if I buy something old, it tends to be longer lasting and better made. So off I have gone scrounging the thrift shops and flea markets. Well a couple months ago I found...
Here is a close up of the top drawer detail.
So this project required a touch of sanding, a little scuffing to allow the paint to have a better grip. Once I cleaned off all traces of dust from sanding, I started layering thin coats of flat white spray paint. I must have done about 6 coats. Flat white paint had a tendency to have shadows, so you will need more coats. Do them thin and do more of them, this will help you avoid runs and will give you a nicer finish. Once everything was dry I did wax the runners do the drawers would move more smoothly.
That's it! Took a few hours and we are done!
Hope you share your projects with me
