The next step? The one I like the most! Paint! Begins with a first color painting the inside of the drawer. And to make it easier, use the brush to paint the corners, and a roller to paint the rest. That way, you’re going to be faster. Once the inside of the drawer is painted, allow it to dry for several hours.

Then paint the outside of the drawer in a second color with a roller. And so you do not stain paint what is already finished, you can cover the edges with body tape.
