Can I spray paint my drawers?
Whether you are using spray paint to paint your furniture piece or an actual paint sprayer, spraying drawers can be difficult to do. If you pull the drawers out, then you will need to mask the entire drawer, except the drawer front.
Is it better to spray or roll paint a dresser?
Spray painting is faster than brush painting. Spray paint can be used on practically any surface, including wood, metal, wicker, plastic and resin. Spray paint dries much more quickly than brushed-on paint. Spray paint is easier to apply on furniture with spindles, small pieces, or intricate nooks and crannies.
Can I use spray paint on a dresser?
I always use Krylon or Rustoleum double cover spray paint. This is the technique I used for painting this dresser and I do the same on every spray paint project. For the top of the dresser, I taped up a piece of cardboard to the base of the top, to protect the ivory and painted the top black.

Can I spray paint wood without sanding?
As it turns out, not only can you spray paint wood without sanding – you can also spray paint pressed wood/particle board (which some parts of this desk were) and even that papery cardboard panel on the back. All of it you guys. Just spray paint ALL of it. Then let it dry and do it again.
Is it faster to spray or roll paint?
It’s a choice that many do-it-yourselfers face, and it can be quite a dilemma. After all, paint spraying is fast: no one can doubt that. Paint rolling is slower than spraying, but you’re able to lay down a thicker coat. Plus, you’ll have less prep work.
Does spraying paint use more paint?
Spraying the Paint Spraying uses more paint because the sprayer atomizes the paint into tiny droplets. Most of the droplets end up on the surface, but many others drift away. This is inherent with paint spraying, and little can be done to control it.
How do you paint without leaving brush marks?
The easiest way to paint without brush marks is to paint with a matte or chalky paint. Flat paint hides imperfections, including brush strokes the most. My absolute favorite matte paint is this one by Fusion Mineral. It comes in lots of trendy colors and is pretty durable on it’s own.
Can I use a sprayer to paint furniture?
Aerosol spray paint is readily available in a wide color range and is inexpensive, and easy to use— a small investment for a good result. Once your work area and furniture are prepped, spray the piece with the bonding primer. Start by flipping the furniture on its top and spray the bottom first.
Should you use a paint sprayer for furniture?
It is better to spray paint furniture if you are looking for a professional finish, as this eliminates the brush strokes and gives an even and high-quality finish that also dries faster. Spray painting is not only a lot faster, especially if doing spindles, but also ensures all those nooks and crannies are covered.

Can you just paint over a dresser?
If you’re painting over painted furniture, make sure to sand down any drips from the previous paint job. I recommend lightly sanding the entire piece of furniture, as it will help the new paint stick. Use sandpaper between a 120 and at least 220 grit.
What kind of paint do you use on a dresser?
For furniture, it’s best to use a satin or semigloss finish in either a latex or an oil-based paint. Never leave primer unpainted. If you choose a latex paint, a latex primer is an excellent choice for most uses.
