The dresser got sanded, dings got filled and then the painting began. It took 3 coats of paint and 2 coats of clear wax. I did lightly hand sand with 320 grit sandpaper on the flat surfaces before waxing to make sure they were extra smooth and the finish would come out even. Lastly, to dress up the elegant black I chose to use glass knobs which I picked up from Hobby Lobby. This dresser definitely has a new look, and one that fits in with my style.
