Do you want to learn how to paint a wood dresser? It’s easy. Check out this beautiful dresser makeover by Lost & Found! Look at how they used Stone to transform the piece. Stone is an earthy gray color that looks amazing on dressers!
Or, do you have a dresser that is outdated? Why not make it over into a towel cabinet for your bathroom like this one or a hair product cabinet for your salon? I love how Lost & Found took out the drawer to make it quick and easy to grab a towel. This dresser is an awesome storage cabinet now. Making over furniture is easy and fun. Painting a dresser in Stone will completely transform it.
- Clean the surface well.
- A light sanding is recommended. If you are painting over peeling paint, scrape and sand to smooth.
- If there are holes, fill them with wood filler and then sand smooth.
- A primer is not needed on most surfaces. However, if a smooth or slick surface, painting a lighter color, painting over a stain or wood with red undertones, or if painting a wood that is known to bleed, a primer is recommended. MudPaint is compatible with water based primers, cover stain and KILZ.
- Be sure surface is free of dust.
- Clean with wet rag and allow to dry completely.
- Before using MudPaint, shake can vigorously and stir thoroughly.
- Apply Stone with a MudPaint brush, working in the direction of the grain of the wood.
- For a more distressed look, paint any which way.
- Most surfaces need only a single coat.
- If applying a second coat, allow to dry, and then lightly sand between coats.
- Allow to dry completely before sanding if distressing.
- If desired, finish with a clear coat for high traffic areas. For low traffic areas, finish with wax.
