This post shows the six steps on how to paint bathroom drawers.

Willey called my repair service for a small job. He wanted to refresh his bathroom drawers. They had been abused by a former renter and he wanted the drawers to be clean. Below are the steps used to get old drawers to look new again. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the first step is to gather the drawers on a 9 by 12 tarp which will confines the paint drips. 
Step 2: Fig.2
shows the use of a 2-inch economy brush and paint one coat of white primer to cover any stains.
Apply primer to the entire drawer, inside and outside

Step 3: Fig.3 and fig.4 shows use a small mini roller painting the sides of the drawer, in this case the right side needed to be painted, it is the side that would show when the drawer is opened. Clean the brush and use the same paint brush to paint the drawers with white satin gloss paint.
