An old dresser can be transformed into a beautiful entryway table with Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover Multi-Purpose Satin Brush-On Paint and Universal Metallic in Gold. Create a DIY masterpiece for your home. 

  1. Remove any existing hardware and sand the dresser to remove loose paint and even the surface. Wipe off any sanding residue with a lint-free cloth.
  2. Apply Stone Gray paint to the dresser with a synthetic paint brush or small paint roller. Paint all surfaces for full coverage.
  3. Allow paint to dry for 2-4 hours.
  4. While paint is drying, set the decorative overlay on a drop cloth and spray paint with Universal Metallic Spray Paint in Gold. Let it dry for about 1 hour.
  5. Apply decorative overlay with Testors Cement and let dry according to package directions.
  6. Add new hardware.

TIP: Use of Painter’s Touch Ultra Cover Multi-Purpose Primer provides a sound base for topcoat adhesion.
