First, use your screwdriver or drill to remove the hardware. Place in a sandwich bag to make sure you don’t lose anything.
Next, time to paint! All you have to do is pour the paint right in the basin at the bottom and twist it back on, plug your sprayer into an extension cord and pull the trigger.
PRO TIP: You can see our full video on spraying this dresser here. We sprayed the entire dresser in under 10 minutes for the first coat and about 5-7 minutes for the second coat.
