This early 1900s American bow front dresser was bought for $125, then updated with two coats of a sprayed white lacquer finish. That not only modernized the dated piece but also helped the bronze hardware stand out. The key to getting a great finish on an old piece is using a sprayer instead of brushes or rollers. Most home improvement stores rent HVLP (high-volume low-pressure) sprayers at a daily rate between $75 and $100. What sets HVLP sprayers apart from others is a fine mist tip, the key to achieving a professional look.
