DIY Dresser Makeover Challenge: Spray Painted Chevron Dresser DIY

I have had this dresser since college.  It was an inexpensive 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:

Instructions:

Here is the dresser before. You can find a dresser like this at a local thrift store. Check out my trash to treasure guide for why you should buy furniture secondhand. It also includes a list of trash to treasure tips and project ideas.

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

Spray Painted Dresser Before

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.

  2. Hi again Dinah, love your chevron IKEA dresser too. I just finished using the chevron tape on an IKEA dresser for my daughter. Don’t you just love the Shape Frog Tape! I have been MIA for months at the parties, so glad to finally catch up at the Share It One More Time Party.
