When refinishing a dresser, question

rjingaDecember 9, 2009

Do you need to paint the inside of the drawers,(the part that you see when the drawer is pulled out)? and what about the inside of the drawer (where your stuff goes).

Or is it customary to just paint the exterior?

Usually the insides of drawers are unpainted, but if it is rough or unsightly you can paint them. I wouldn't use a stain but a paint. Do it to suit yourself and what you want to store in them. After all they are unseen until you pull out the drawer

thanks oilpainter, after doing some searching for painted dressers, it appears even the most spendy ones do not have the sides painted, and the drawers are usually lined with some decorative paper.
