Place dresser on a matt or painters cloth. Lightly sand entire dresser unit, including handles. If you want to keep the original handles, or change them out, remove them.
Start with a light coat of latex paint using a sponge roller brush and sponge brushes, I also have a small art brush to get in those nooks that a sponge won't get.
I start by painting the top drawer then working my way down, pulling each drawer out a little bit more than the previous to enable me to get all the edges.
Paint another coat, depending on your color of choice, it can take up to 4 coats before you get a smooth flawless finish. Apply coats thinly, so the look is smooth and no strokes can be seen.
Complete! I opted to paint the handles the same color as the dresser - this looks great when using flat paint as well when the handles are static (no moving parts) no paint will flake off.
