I also wanted our coffee table to match!
First I remove all hardware.
Then I started by using my husbands electric sander and lightly sanded them both.
Then I used a primer.
It went on smooth and clear on the dresser but thick and white on the coffee table. Hmph. I was perplexed!
I let the primer dry, then I sanded the coffee table again.
Then I painted them both! Here's the secret!!! I used a roller over all of it except the small corners & edges.
I used two coats of Valspar "Quarry Pond". One quart was more than enough for both.
