I painted our inherited 1970s dressers. I love to keep family pieces. Now it has our personality! We removed the glued on superficial wood pieces (can see one halfway still attached in first photo), filled old hardware holes with oak dowel rods, used Dark Walnut Minwax stain for the tops and Westhighland White acrylic enamel paint from Sherwin Williams for the bodies of the dressers. Everything was sealed with satin finish polyurethane. I'm in love!
