Before starting this French Farmhouse Dresser makeover, I began with the most important step in painting your furniture. Cleaning! I use Dixie Belle’s White Lighting mixed in a spray bottle of warm water. Mist over the surface and wipe clean. After cleaning I wiped down the whole piece again with clear water and a soft cloth to remove any residue of the cleaner.
