I knew I wanted to paint the piece white. I had the perfect spot for it in my living room. It was to replace the old dresser that I updated a few years ago. The black and white with the nickel knobs was cute, but I wanted something more glamorous.
Once the paint job was done, I tackled the hardware. At first, I planned to spray paint the handles. They were really worn and had a layer of cream paint on them that looked like it would be impossible to remove.
Once I removed the paint from the handles, I still considered spray painting them. They were rusty and dirty looking.
