I need to apologize to you.
I wrote a book all about life saving furniture painting tips and I left one out.
To be fair, I just accidentally figured this tip out, so that is why it was not in the book.
I hope this blog post makes up for it.
I might have to write a revised version of my book based solely on how strongly I feel people need to know this tip.
If you have read my book or my blog for any amount of time you know I love to turn furniture over when I paint the first coat of paint on.
You also know I love to prop furniture up when painting.
But what about dressers?
The kind with unfinished backs.
Insert my furniture dolly with a large handle.
The answer was so simple I can’t believe I never noticed it before.
To make your dresser painting project so. much. easier. lay your dresser on it’s back and lower the dolly so the handle and the wheels prop it off the the ground.
I used this tip when spraying this media console with Heirloom Traditions Paint during this video.
