    5. Paint the body of the dresser using Everlasting. Mix the paint for the drawers: Use Reminisce for the bottom drawer and then gradually lighten it using Everlasting for each drawer. (Mix each of the colors in disposable cups until you get the colors you like. Cover the cups in aluminum foil when you aren't using them.)
