I'm not gonna lie sometimes when I get pieces in that I know will have nice wood grain my heart melts a little when someone wants to paint the entire piece. That being said I always fall in love when its finished and this dresser is no exception! This was the 7th piece bought of mine by one of my best clients Liz. The steps I took for this one was my usual process to sand, prime, fill any imperfections, fill holes to add new hardware, prime, spray 4 coats of Sherwin Williams paint color was New York State of Mind and sprayed with several coats of General Finishes Enduro clear poly in flat. I have found that the Enduro helps me achieve that super super smooth flawless finish and sprays perfection!
