How to apply Cane on Dresser Drawer Fronts

Updated: Jan 2, 2022

This high end dresser had an extreme makeover with new cane drawer fronts and paint. The finish was damaged and this dresser had a bad case of the drabs! With some black chalk paint, new cane webbing, new moulding and sleek modern drawer pulls it went from drab to dramatic! This video shows the simple steps to perform a magical transformation on this dresser.
