It was a combination of white and timber which I liked. However it needed a bit of work as it was looking a bit tired.
You will need;
Sandpaper (180 and 120 Grade)
Paint (I used Resene Black/white)
Accent colour (I used Dulux Spraypaint Forest green)
Timber draw knobs
1. Remove extisting hardwear and pull drawers out of dresser- both of these things will make it easier to work on.
2. Simply sand down all the surfaces you wish to paint and give them a rough finish for the new paint to adhear to. In this case I had to remove a sticky plastic sheeting that was fixed to the top of mine.
3. Give any timber areas a light sand with a finer paper I used 180 grade
4. Once you are happy with the finish on the surfaces paint. If you are worried about getting brush marks you can use a sponge brush or roller which you can find at your local craft supplier or hardware store. The painted surfaces may need two to three coats depending on the condition of the surface you started with.
5. Spray the timber knobs and give them a good two to three coats as well. Make sure you give the paint plenty of time to set before fixing them to your draws. I chose a accent colour for these which tied in with the colour scheme of the rest of the room.
6. Following the instructions on the side of the tin apply the Danish oil to the timber of the draws. I used a clean rag to do this but if you follow the instructions on the tin you will get the best results. This is also readily available in the paint section of the hardware store.
And that's it! Now you can sit back and enjoy your handy work..
