How David Bromstad Uses Paint
To Update A Dated Dresser
If you've got an outdated dresser you're unsure what to do with, HGTV’s David Bromstad suggests revitalizing it by covering it in a fresh coat of paint.
Bromstad says before you paint, "Just prepare [the dresser] properly so the paint sticks well to the surface and lasts over time."
"Sand it, fill holes with putty, and prime it before painting," instructs Bromstad. You should also clean the furniture to avoid dust or debris getting stuck in the paint.
Sometimes a bit of glamor is required, so Bromstad suggests, "You can also change the pulls to give it the bling it deserves." Now comes picking the right color.
If your walls are bright, Bromstad advises painting the dresser a neutral hue; but for neutral-colored walls, painting it a bold color is a terrific way to add life to a space.
