Painted Dresser With Numbers

4 Hours

I love this dresser so much and it's a really fun project for a playroom or rec room! It's been on my to-do list ever since last fourth of July when I first painted it gray and distressed it and put it in the upstairs playroom. It never really looked right.
It looked....gray.
Gray with red numbers is so much better. :)
Here's the finished dresser with numbers....creating a fun, vintage look!
I painted in each of the numbers with a slant tip paint brush. Try to stay in the lines!
To create visual interest...I turned the numbers upside down and right side up.
Print out the numbers and trace onto the drawer fronts with graphite paper.
I used standard acrylic paint and sealed the project with polycrylic!
