Give a new dresser a new purpose! First, I pulled out all the drawers and dragged the body off. I then painted it with a dry-brush technique – you dip the brush in the paint, clean the bristles with the inner lip of the paint can and brush it on the piece so that it does not completely cover the wood. This leaves part of the wood free. then I took a rag and dipped it lightly in the stain and wiped it sporadically on the paint, followed by a soft cloth to wipe it off.
