Spray Painted Chevron Dresser DIY

Spray Painted Dresser Makeover

I have had this dresser since college.  It was a cheap IKEA buy that has lasted over 15 years. Now, I am working on making my walk-in closet a little prettier and wanted to make it stand out. This project came just in time for the Make It Yours®​ with Krylon® contest (details to follow) as my entry. Here is how I made my spray painted chevron dresser DIY with the spray paint Krylon provided me.

Materials:

  • Dresser
  • Screwdriver
  • Chevron Shape Tape
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Facemask
  • Krylon Pewter Gray Gloss Spray Paint
  • Krylon Peekaboo Spray Paint
  • Tarp

Instructions:

Here is the dresser before.

I removed the drawers and disassembled the front and top only, leaving the side and back shell.

I used FrogTape Shape Tape to tape off the chevron stripes on the front of the drawer.

I spray painted the front and top of the dresser in Krylon Peekaboo Blue and spray painted the chevron stripes Krylon Gray. I spray painted two coats allowing the paint to dry in between. When spray painting, be sure to spray in a well-ventillated area. You may opt to use a facemask as well.

Lastly, I put the hardware back on and reassembled the dresser. Here are a couple AFTER photos.
