Materials and Tools:
medium- to rough-grade sandpaper
1. If you want a larger container, you can attach two drawers together with wood glue and screws.
2. Sand off the old stain and smooth out any rough spots on the surface with a medium- to rough-grade sandpaper. You don't have to sand down to bare wood.
3. Prime the surface, then base coat the drawer with acrylic paint.
4. Create a design with a stencil. Be sure to use a dry brush when applying paint to avoid seepage under the stencil.
