  • One roll of d-c-fix® glossy Gold
  • Processing set d-c-fix® with squeegee and cutter
  • Pencil

  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Glass

Let’s go

Step 1

First remove the drawers from the chest of drawers and measure the front of the drawers. Note the measurements on the back of your d-c-fix® adhesive film.

Step 2

Now cut two matching pieces from the Petrol Adhesive Film, remove the backing paper and place the film on the edge of the front. Use the squeegee to apply the adhesive film.

Step 3

Repeat step 2 with the golden adhesive foil. Your dresser has three drawers? Then all you need is a piece of the gold bonding sheet.

Step 4

Cut off remaining film at the edge with the cutter.

Step 5

Draw circles on the back of the golden d-c-fix® film using a glass. Fold the circle in half and mark the center on the opposite side.

Step 6

Place the glass on the marks of the drawn circle and draw the overlap. Repeat this on the other side and cut it off with the cutter.

Step 7

Stick the new shape as a scale pattern on the golden adhesive foil and paint everything well. And ready is your "new" piece of furniture in the trendy petrol-gold mix.

You’re done!
