I hope this is an appropriate place to post this question.
My mil bought a dresser from her friend for $25 and then gave it to us for ds's room. The issue is the dresser is very musty smelling. We've had it for over a year, almost two actually, and it still smells.
Here's my question:
Can I prime the dresser with something that will eliminate the musty odor and then maybe paint it?
FWIW, this dresser isn't even worth $25 but we hate to just get rid of it because mil will notice. IDK what else to do with it, it's been sitting empty all this time.
Kilz (sp!) will help, it's a primer used for covering crazy colored paints and mold. It's not very eco-friendly, however. If I were you, I would use Kilz and then air it out (outdoors) until it is completely dry, then paint and call it good.
