STEP 1: Prep furniture by removing all hardware and sanding any rough areas; wipe with clean, damp cloth to remove dust or debris.

STEP 2: Determine first circle position on the furniture and lightly mark the center point with the pencil; from the central point, measure outward to determine the radius and cut a piece of string the same length.

STEP 3: Tie one end of the string tightly around the pencil and secure the other end to the middle point of the circle with the thumbtack.

STEP 4: Keeping string taut, lightly draw a circle by moving pencil clockwise until the circle is complete.

STEP 5: Repeat steps 2 through 4 to create second circle; for two different-size circles, use two different-size strings.

STEP 6: Using the angled brush, carefully paint freehand along the inside edge of the circle; once circle is outlined, paint remainder.

STEP 7: Allow paint to dry, following suggested drying time on the can label.

STEP 8: Reattach hardware.
