  3. Remove the glass from the frames and the knobs from the desk drawers and set aside.
  4. Lightly sand everything to rough up the surface and wipe clean with a tack cloth.
  5. If the wood is new, you'll want to start with the Rust-Oleum® Painter's® Touch Ultra Cover 2X Primer Spray. Follow the application directions on the can and let dry completely.
  6. Spray on the Rust-Oleum® Painter's® Touch Ultra Cover 2X Semi-Gloss Spray in Semi-Gloss Black onto your items following the application directions on the can to ensure a perfect finish. Allow to dry completely.
  7. While your paint is drying, take the drawer knobs and spray with Rust-Oleum® Universal® Hammered Spray in Dark Bronze Hammered. Allow the knobs to dry.
  8. Re-attach the knobs to the drawers and replace the glass in your frames. You know the perfect spot for your sophisticated new office furniture.
