2
Use a degreaser and warm water and scrub all woodwork with flexible backing pad or paper wet-dry sandpaper. This is responsible for cleaning and polishing in one step. Rinse and let dry. Use newspaper or rags left to protect countertops and floors.

 
3
Apply a first coat of paint on all surfaces. Paint the dresser drawers and both sides of the doors, paying attention to drips on the edges. If you are painting around a mirror, use a very steady hand or masking tape to protect it.

4
Now seal the gaps of doors, drawers and where the wood meets the walls. Get all excess caulk with a wet finger carefully until smooth. Let dry for at least two hours, depending on how heavy they are putty lines.

5
Paint everything you have prepared. Better make thin, uniform layers of heavy, lumpy. Let dry for at least eight hours. Then very gently sanding with fine grit paper, wet-dry sandpaper or sanding pad. Carefully dusts. Paint your second layer. Unless you use pure white or a very low color you hide two layers should be sufficient, but do not put all your paint yet.

6
Hang the doors and replace the hardware. Now checks for small dents to the time to put everything back together and retouch paint as necessary.
