Emerald Green MCM Dresser Makeover with Behr Paint

Tuesday, April 28, 2020

Good Morning everyone!

Today's makeover is featuring my personal MCM dresser that I have in my master bedroom!  I rarely ever paint things for myself these days, because everything is already painted!  But, my dresser needed a makeover so it fit the vibe of our master.

So, let's get into the makeover!


I've had this dresser for about 9 months now.  I picked it up on Facebook Marketplace when we first moved into our new home and I still love it!  MCM is my jam, and affordable MCM is even better.

It was just wood and I loved that look, but once we redid our room, I wanted to bring the bold green color from our wall over to our dresser!

Here is what our master bedroom looks like to help you visualize:


Behr Paint in Dark Everglade

So, we brought this baby downstairs and I got to work.  I cleaned it really well and patched up any holes or chipping veneer with spackle and then sanded it smooth once it was dry!

I primed the drawers to seal in the spackle with my favorite BIN primer and a 4 inch microfiber roller, doing 3 coats.  I let it dry for a day and then smoothed it out with 320 grit sandpaper and we were almost ready for paint!

I wrapped my drawers up in my painters tape and plastic in one to prevent any over spray that could possibly happen.

Time to Paint!

I mixed up my BB Frosch Paint Transformer Powder with my Behr paint in the color Dark Everglade with a flat finish!  Just follow the measurements on the jar of your BB Frosch powder depending on how much paint you need mixed up :)

I strained my paint and loaded up my Homeright Paint sprayer and we were ready to apply our paint.  I adjusted my spray pattern and pressure and sprayed my whole piece.  I let each coat dry thoroughly before doing another.  I did 3 coats total!

Once all of the paint has dried completely, I was ready to spray my topcoat.  I use my favorite water based poly from Varathane in my sprayer and apply 3 coats over the whole piece.

And were done!  I love how this brings the wall color over to the other side of the room and it just gives me all the good vibes!
