On this dresser I used the Martha Stewart textured metallic paint for the design I drew on the front and the stencil on sides. The down fall of this product is that it took almost four days to dry in my garage that was not that cold. I even took the blow dyer to it and it helped a little, I'm not sure if I would use it again unless it's really hot outside. I sanded and distressed the whole thing to give it that aged look. I didn't have 16 matching knobs for the dresser so I took all the mismatch knobs I had laying around and spray painted them all the same color.
