how to paint dressers + my new favorite tool!




This post may contain my affiliate link. For more information, please see my disclosure policy: Thanks! :)


I found 2 of these dressers at a local thrift store for $25 each. I loved them because they were lower for my 2 youngest boys to reach, they were solid wood with dovetail drawers,  and they were matching—there were 2!may 2014 002
The prep always seems to take longest but is the most important step – taking out the drawers, removing hardware, wiping them down, and sanding rough edges.

But THEN the fun part begins. I have never been so excited about a tool in my life: the Homeright Finish Max Sprayer. You just fill it up with paint/primer/sealant/stain whatever, make sure it’s thin enough to pass through (they give you a little tool to test this --- I had to add just a little water to the Sherwin Williams all-purpose primer I used), and then go.to.town!

I had the first dresser primed in a minute, couldn’t believe it. I would suggest using water based primers and paints so clean-up is a breeze.

Then, came paint! This color is 6356 Copper Mountain from Sherwin Williams. Again, thin it out a little in the white cup and then spray away.

Since it is for my boys, I wanted some extra durability, so I finished it off with about 3 coats of satin polyurethane. I didn’t have to thin this out at all, and it also cleans up with water.

I love how they turned out, and I’m finding all sorts of things I can paint with this sprayer. You will be seeing much more of it in upcoming projects! Things I love:
* you can use any color of paint like a spray paint, except you don’t have to battle nasty fumes.
* the price is amazing. We had another stain sprayer we used to prime some furniture in Virginia that was twice the price and did not spray well at all.
* it’s quick – I have never knocked a painting project out so quickly.
* it uses less paint. I didn’t even use 1/3 of a gallon for these dressers.
* the finish is smooth and beautiful – I’m sold.

A few tips to help you out:
* make sure the tube inside the paint cup is tilted the way your sprayer will be tilted.
* If the paint starts to spatter a bit, check the nozzle. I left it out in the garage while I went back inside and it got a little dried and I just quickly peeled it off.
* Clean it up right after so you don’t have to scrub dried paint off of the inside.
* Like spray paint, do multiple light coats and let it dry in between instead of one heavy, dripping coat.

I love how they turned out, and here they sit in the garage (painting + moving box central) waiting to move into the boys’ room at the new house. I used the industrial handles from the hardware store, which were $3.xx a piece. I thought they fit the dressers perfectly and I’m still trying to decide what do with the odd drawer – 2 knobs or fill them with wood filler and match the rest. They look like eyes to me:)

Also, I have to tell you that I was about ready to spit nails when I used some Walmart screws to attach the handles and the screw broke off in the MIDDLE of the wood. They were so cheaply made – do yourself a favor and get the real titanium screws that most hardware store sell. Grrrrrrr. I just super-glued the head back on for looks. Go for the good ones.use good screws
The BEST part is Homeright wants to give Finish Max Sprayer away to a lucky reader! Just tell us in the comments what project you would use the Finish Max for. Good luck and happy spraying!!

  1. My 6th baby is due in 3 weeks, so we are doing a major overhaul to all 3 of our children's bedrooms (2 kids per room). I would love the sprayer to repaint dressers and headboards!

  2. When we moved into our house, for some reason all of the doors in the entire house were outside it the detached garage. I've been "working" on them for 5 years now. I've had to strip most of them, and the ones I have painted have brush strokes I can hardly stand. Using the Finish Max Sprayer for this project would be so AWESOME, I can't even tell you!!!
    Thanks for the opportunity! :D

  15. I have a dresser sitting in my garage desperately in need of a paint job. I also have a bookshelf in my living room that could use some love. Thanks for the giveaway:)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've had the parts to build a fence for - ahem - 2 years, but the dread of painting all those spindles has kept me from getting started. A paint sprayer would be just the ticket!

    ReplyDelete
  17. AAAHHHH! What a great giveaway! I have an entire first floor of dark, DARK, wood trim that my husband and I hate. The rest of the house is bright, fresh white and we want to paint it so bad, but there are 10" baseboards + crown moulding, 10 windows, 4 doorways, a set of french doors, ceiling beams and two built-in china cabinets. That's a lot of wood. We just can't bring ourselves to tackle it without something that will expedite the process, especially with three little kiddies to look after!

  18. My fiance and I are just getting ready to move in to our first place, and I'd love to spice up some older furniture to save some dough!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have a nightstand, two bookcases and a desk that all need paint DESPERATELY, but I've been putting it off because it's so much work. That Finish Max Sprayer would save me so much time, I might just have to dub it my new BFF!

  30. Seriously, the price really is RIGHT!!!!! I would expect nothing else from you though. After 10 years and two boys, all the doors in my home need a paint job, this would save me so much time. Pick me Pick me. I actually had the critter spray gun pinned but this just trumped that option for ease of use and no air compressor.

  66. Headboards for my girls, this would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Those really turned out great! Love the orange and the handles! Can't believe that happened with your screw. If you refrained from sobbing and throwing things, you're a better woman than me. ;)

    I just bought a mule chest on a neighborhood classified FB page last night, and I would LOVE to use a sprayer to paint it! It has a rope detail to it and would be a nightmare to paint by hand.

    ReplyDelete
  68. We are remodeling our 36 year old house. I have ordered all new doors to replace the awful fake wood ones. I would love a sprayer to paint the doors and trim throughout the house. Time to put the 70's behind me!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I am planning on painting a $75 pair of SOLID wood cabinets/bookshelves to make a "built-in" look next to my fireplace. This would make the project go SO much faster! (and I'm sure I could find 1,000 other things to paint with it)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I have two dressers that need to be painted!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I would love, love, love to have this paint sprayer! I would definitely use it to spray my kitchen cabinets with a smooth finish! P.S. I hope your move went smoothly! I live close to Blacksburg, VA (Radford, VA to be exact). Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would love to use this sprayer to paint an older than dirt (and just about as ugly) dresser in my bedroom! It needs help, but I know how much work is involved to get it done! This would make the project much easier!

  76. I would love to use this product for my dad's old desk ... dark wood, but not so great for an 11 year old girl. I also have some ugly wood cabinets that are really good, solid wood and I just want to make them white and change out the hardware. I bought this 1969 house about 9 months ago and I have managed to paint 75% of the house over the course of the time living here. I'm getting TIRED and ready for something quick and easy to help pretty up this old house.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  82. I would love to paint furniture with a sprayer! Currently, I use a brush and a small foam roller but this looks so much easier. Would be so great to win this sprayer. I also can't wait to see photos of your new house. I'm really curious on the boys room with the color you picked for the dressers. I vote silver knobs for the odd top drawer unless you create a new drawer front to match the other than I would say handle.

    ReplyDelete
  83. So many projects to choose from.... I would probably use it to paint our dark colored desk, bookcase and entertainment center. I want lighter colors and this tool would make it a breeze!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I would use the sprayer for some dressers! I currently have 4 waiting to be painted.

    ReplyDelete
  92. This is a really wonderful thing! I've got a bookshelf that isn't a finished, a table and dresser that aren't even started and many other projects I'd love to try this on!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I want to paint my daughter's bed from white to mint green!

    ReplyDelete
  95. The nightstands look yummy! Thanks for the review of the sprayer, too. I've read good things about it so it's good to hear that reinforced here. I've bought my first pieces of furniture to paint (nightstand, dresser, and china cabinet). First attempt with the nightstand has me very unhappy with the brush strokes (even using the expensive paint brush). Would be so lovely to have a paint sprayer! Thanks for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I love these! I have been putting off painting a dresser for a few years now...but now I am motivated after seeing your results. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  102. I have dressers, table and chairs, and an armoire just waiting to be painted!!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I have never painted anything so I would love to try this out! I would definitely paint some chairs for our deck!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I can't wait to see this in your boys' room! You're great at using non-trendy colors, and I love to see how you use them because it always just looks so natural! I definitely need to get myself one of those suckers. We're currently living in my parent's basement while we house hunt, and I've been meaning to use this time to re-paint my and my husband's twin dressers and our son's dresser-turned-bookcase. Should probably get on that!

    ReplyDelete
  105. What a WONDERFUL sprayer. I would most likely use it like you did. I have 3 antique dressers of my grandmothers that I would like to paint black since I cannot afford new dressers and my son has a tall boy that I would paint black as well. This is JUST AMAZING. Oh...and I have two night stands..and a couple of shelves. Oh the possibilities. Please enter me as I would use this A LOT!

    Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  122. Thanks for such a great giveaway, Melissa! I would paint my garage door.

    ReplyDelete
  123. The question is what would I NOT use it on!? End tables, china cabinet, dining room table, OH MY! I probably would even spray my children if I could get them to sit still long enough. I have tried to jump on the chalk paint train and 'ol Annie just didn't wow me like I was hoping so now I have a house full of projects just waiting for me to get some motivation... and I think that sprayer is just the kick in the pants I need!

    ReplyDelete

    I have two buffets waiting to be painted, but my biggest job is the antique furniture that used to be mine as a girl and now belongs to my daughter. The beautiful wedgewood blue paint is chipping off and needs to be refinished. I've been putting it off for two years now because I dread what a big job it's going to be!

  156. Just lovely! I would use the sprayer to paint 2 dressers that have been sitting in our storage shed for a couple of months now. This sprayer looks like it could help get the job done :).

  160. Oh my gosh I LOVE this! I have SO many projects that have been delayed because I hate painting by hand. I have an entertainment unit that is supposed to become a little girl's vanity, an antique high chair that needs refinishing, some pallet work and some vinyl signage all just hanging around waiting.

  161. Beautiful Melissa!!! This is perfect timing! I've actually just acquired 2 new dressers and want to paint them! I also have a BUNCH of other projects as well! Quick question....you said you sprayed 3 coats of the polyurethane to finish it. Was there any bubbling or roughness afterwards that you had to sand down? I've tried the polyurethane in the spray can and it was NO GOOD. It came out in big bubbles and splatters. I only did one coat on the chair I was finishing.....so maybe that was my fault??? Thank you for this awesome giveaway!!!

  167. Thanks for the review! Your dressers are looking good! Sorry about the broken screw, that's so frustrating. I have a thrift store head and foot board that are begging for a makeover with a fresh coat of paint, I'd love to use this sprayer! :)

  169. I love hoe the dressers turned out. I would use the sprayer to redo my garage service door. Then I would try my hand at some dressers. I have not been brave enough to do this yet!

    ReplyDelete
  180. Oh so many projects! Possibilities are endless! Pick me! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  181. Oh, and I was so excited I forgot to tell which project I will start on. I will use the Homeright Finish Max first to paint some bookshelves I have to use in my laundry room for storing pantry items. Can't wait to get started!

  182. I would use a new sprayer to paint my autistic daughters' nightstand her favorite color, cherry red.

    ReplyDelete
  183. I would use it for EVERYTHING. And as for that top drawer, I'd go with a knob on each of the raised panels. Three across won't look like eye balls :) That orange is luscious!!!

  189. Wow! your project turned out great. I have a bunk bed that belonged to my kids grandfather that we are painting. I have already spent hours paint the first bed by hand, the top bunk is sitting in my garage while i muster up the energy to paint it. I would love to have the sprayer to finish this. I have many other projects I could use it for too!

    ReplyDelete
  190. I started my kitchen remodeling and am having trouble finding the time to finish with 4 kids at home. This sprayer would make things so much easier and quicker. I still have 29 cabinets to go and 10 drawers. I would use it after for my furniture refinishing business too so it would get a ton of use!

    ReplyDelete
  191. Furniture for sure! The bed in the spare room is in need.

    ReplyDelete
  192. I didn't even think about this until reading your post, but I have a couple of dressers that need updating. One is the I had has a child. It's still in good shape but could def use a fun paint job. My son just got an old dresser from a friend who had gotten it used from one of the colleges.

    Now that you've got me thinking, I'd love to redo our kitchen table. We are the 3rd owner through family and it def needs to be updated.

  193. Like most, I have a huge ugly dark armoire that I want to paint and lighten. My daughter is graduating from collage and is moving into an apartment in need of everything. We found some furniture at flee markets that are in need of a good coat of paint. We would love the opportunity to win the sprayer for our many projects.

    Thanks,
