Hi I was wondering if anyone could help I want to get these dresser an expresso brown color I tried painting ( primed it first)with a valspar java brown and it came out terrible so I went on sand and to stain and the color came out nothing like the color I want it is way to light I thinking that I should just go back to paint because it takes way to long to sand the whole thing but does anyone have a suggestion of a color or brand that I can use to paint it I am looking for a dark chocolate /expresso color thanks'!!!!!!!
