    Looking good Andrew! That will be a great dresser for your boys to beat up.

    @Sprokitz that’s just not right…funny but not right.

    The finish will be a solid color finish. Probably a latex but maybe a laquer tinted.

    Today I sanded everything once more and then clear coated tye drawer boxes. Just a simple laquer. I like laquer because it’s pretty durable and dries fast allowing me multiple coats quickly.

    For the primer I used a high solids laquer surfacer. It is thick and requires reduction of approximately 50%. I sprayed the drawer fronts and cabinet. Then I used some 5 minute Durabond to fill some minor imperfections. Next was another sanding. The surfacer powders real nice when you sand it making for a baby but smooth finish. I sprayed 2 more coats and let it set.

    Once I get a color from the picky client (wifey) I will sand the surfacer one more time and start spraying color. Hopefully this one will be done in a few days.

    It’s looking great. I too appreciate lacquer…it’s just much easier to work with than other finishes if you have the ability to spray.

    Tell me about the primer you used. Never heard of such a thing!

    @jponto07 it is a Sherwin Williams product.

    I have used the OPex label surfacer (which technically is in their metal finishes line but also is approved for wood) and I have used their Sherwood line.

    Both are excellent! They lay down nice, fill minor imperfections well, are fast dry for multiple coats.

    Looks great, Like the choice of primer it looks like it just came off the assembly line.
    Great job, your son will abuse it for sure. LOL

    I am getting an education here on finishing with paint. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to the finished product pictures. Have you decided on the drawer hardware yet?

    That’s great! I hope it is helpful. Finishing is something that takes time to learn what to use in what situation and patience not to rush it. I struggle with rushing it sometimes.

    Not sure on the hardware. Wifey will pick that out. The drawers just slide on a wood guide. I will attach some plastic drawer runners which help it glide smoother.

    Oh I missed this thread…. Nice job on the junked dresser.
    Do you ever use some paraffin wax on the drawer slide?
    I find it works good for that.

    Thanks Dirty! I have used that before. It works very well. The only thing I don’t like is if you have a darker color finish the wax leaves small “wax dust” as you use the drawers. I know its a minor thing but it looks like you never dust…lol.

    I’ve used paste wax already. I don’t notice any more dust than this old house seems to generate.

    Hey Andrew, I could send you some Teflon tape, it’s very thin, sticks pretty good if you clean the surface good, I attached a picture, you can cut it to your size, P M message me if you are interested. I’m sure it could fit into an envelope easy. I can send you a couple of feet.

    That’s a great offer. I think I have some left over from another project but if I don’t I’ll hit you up for some! Thanks!

    I know it a little weird…just one of those things.

    I was talking to my Sherwin Williams rep today about some different finish options. Depending on the color I may do either a tinted laquer with conversion varnish clear coat or a latex enamel with a waterborne clear coat. It will depend on what color the wifey picks.

    How about replacing them with some strips of UHMWPE ?? They would slide like they were on ice.

    I have used Sherwin Williams tinted lacquers many times. I was always very happy with the results.

    @overanalyze, hey no problem Andrew, I have it ready to go if you need it. No charge.

    #398733

    Well the color the wifey picked was to dark for tinted laquer so a latex enamel was chosen. I will apply a clear coat over that.

    I used Sherwin Williams All Surface Enamel. I have used it before and it does spray well and lay down nice. I thin it approx 10% with hot water. I find the hot water helps it flow better without additional reduction.

    Here it is with 3 coats. One more coat and then two coats of clear and I am calling it good enough.

    Looking good Andrew. Good tip on the hot water.
    That’s an interesting color she picked. I like it.
