Step 4

Repeat with as many stripes as you want, eyeballing the distance between each one. You can even paint thin stripes over wide ones — just make sure the first coat is dry before applying tape. (Stripe colors: Deep Carnation by Benjamin Moore, Buttered Sweet Corn by Glidden, Lunch Bag by Martha Stewart Living Paint, Blue Danube by Benjamin Moore, Nancy’s Blushes by Farrow & Ball, Holly Leaf by Martha Stewart Living Paint, Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore)

Step 5

Place paper cups upside down and poke the drawer knobs through the tops to hold them in place. Paint each knob the same color as the stripe it matches up with on the dresser. Let dry, then screw them back in.
