painting Wooden draws

To All

My OH just bought a white dresser, think its malomine in a off white. I think its ok but she loves it

My question is, I have some solid old draws I want to match the dresser, how do I paint them to match the dresser?:confused:

And I know I use a brush before anyone makes that joke!!!:rolleyes:

    you could paint them both to match. with the melamine you get melamine primer, rub it over the surface, dry, then paint.

    with the old drawers, i presume you mean they are wood, if they are varnised, sand down a bit, do you want a distressed look? if so, it wont matter if its not perfect but if you wanta really crisp gloss look, i dont know how to do that, i think you need to prepare it properly for that
