From Matte to Finish
his dresser was given to me in pretty bad shape. The veneer was scratched, stained, and chipped. After a careful sanding, I filled in the divots with wood filler and prepped for paint. I knew I wanted a smooth finish, but didn’t want to pay to have it professionally sprayed. Instead, I used some leftover matte gray paint which dries to a smooth finish, then coated it with about 4 layers of polyurethane to give it durability. Now, no one can walk past it without touching it. Huh!
