Materials Needed:

  • paint brush
  • wood filler
  • sand paper
  • drill
  • screwdriver
  • paint: Blazer by Farrow & Ball

Step 1

Remove and discard the original hardware; patch holes with wood filler. Let dry, then sand lightly. Remove the door and drawers. Paint the sideboard, door, and drawer fronts. (We used a full-gloss finish for added shine.) Let dry, then apply a second coat.

Step 2

Drill holes in the door and drawers. Screw in new hardware (Streamline hooks in bronze, $16 each, anthropologie.com).

Step 3

Reattach the door and replace the drawers.
