Match dresser is a piece of furniture with usually up to five drawers used to store clothes. Many people who have chest of boxes often get them from a relative, such as a parent or grandparent. Some agencies require painting due to age or poor paint. To refinish an agency, first get the right tool for the job
Check and see what type of stripper is needed for your furniture. Use a cotton swap to first use a small amount of denatured alcohol and then polish it to see which one dissolves. If the surface does not dissolve with either, you need a liquid paint remover. Remove hardware from match dresser. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws that secure the handle on each box. Remove old paint and finish from chest of drawers. Apply the stripper to the chest of drawers using a brush or spray bottle.
Wait at least 10 to 20 minutes and scrape the old wood end with a plastic scraper. Use a piece of steel wool to remove the old finish from corners or carved details. Grind the surfaces to make them soft and remove any stains of paint. Use a hand-held grinder with low abrasive paper and easily go over the entire chest. Wipe away the match dresser to remove dust and other materials with a vacuum cleaner.
