  1. Your dresser will need refinishing. If the finish is a tinted lacquer you will need to get a pro to do it, lacquer isn't easy to work with and must be sprayed.

    If you want to try this yourself you will need to sand the affected down to raw wood to get rid of the oil before applying the lacquer finish. Another option is to sand, prime and paint with a good oil based enamel. It won't match exactly but would be a cheaper fix.

  2. If oil has caused damage to your black lacquered dresser, addressing the issue promptly is crucial to prevent further deterioration. Here are the steps you can take to fix the paint damage caused by the spilled oil on your dresser:

    1. Clean the affected area: Use a gentle cleaner or soap to remove any remaining oil residue from the surface of the dresser. Be careful not to rub too hard, as this may worsen the paint damage.

    2. Sand the damaged area: Lightly sand the area where the paint has come off to create a smooth surface for repainting. Use fine-grit sandpaper and be cautious not to damage the surrounding paint.

    3. Prime the surface: Apply a primer specifically designed for use on lacquered surfaces to ensure better adhesion of the new paint. Let the primer dry completely according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

    4. Repaint the dresser: Choose a high-quality black paint that matches the color of your dresser. Apply thin, even coats of paint with a brush or spray gun, allowing each coat to dry fully before applying the next one. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may need multiple coats to achieve a seamless finish.

    5. Seal the surface: Once the paint has dried completely, consider applying a clear top coat to protect the new paint finish and enhance the overall durability of the surface.
