What type of paint can you use to paint a dresser?

  • Chalk Paint – won’t leave brush marks
  • Acrylic or Acrylic Enamel Paint – adheres well
  • Milk Paint – soaks into raw wood similar to stain
  • Spray Paint – quick and easy to apply

You can use almost any type of paint to paint a dresser. Although you usually want to avoid using latex paint for painting furniture pieces because it doesn’t adhere to the surface as well. It will almost always peel or chip in the future.

Do I have to sand the dresser first?

You don’t necessarily have to sand before painting, but no matter what type of paint you use, it is recommended to at least do a light sanding. This helps to ensure the paint will adhere to the surface.

You’ll also want to sand if the surface is uneven or if there is existing paint, stain, or sealer on the piece. You don’t have to sand off all the paint, but at least the spots where it might be chipping.

Painting a dresser is a fun way to update an old piece of bedroom furniture and give it new life.
