  6. Hi! I recently repainted a dresser of mine, and it seems like the paint hasn’t completely dried or something weird like that since anything I put on top of it sticks and the drawers also stick, but it has been months. I just read your How To Paint Furniture and am wondering if I need to sand down the entire thing and start over, or if I can just use a protective finish?

    Thank you!!

  7. Try a clear wax Laura, that should take care of your “stick” problem!
