I will be redecorating my daughter's room and was given a small metal dresser (?, it has drawers)
Is it at all possible to paint metal with the same paint that I would use for the walls (or at least other wooden furniture)? I'm thinking I'll have to spray paint it, but hoping one of the crafty geniuses on here knows a way to make this possible.

Thanks in advance Smiley

Possible? Yes. Practical? Not that I know of... Wall paint was made to stick to drywall and wood, and not a whole lot else. You'd probably have to use a coat of primer or something similar to put on the metal to make it work, and at that point you might as well use metal paint or contact paper or something.
