The new look in gray – wow!
You will need…
Prepare for upcycling with the adhesive foils by cleaning the chest of drawers thoroughly to remove all dirt and grease from the surfaces to be covered.
Now it’s time to measure: Transfer the dimensions of the body and fronts to the back of the relevant adhesive foil. Allow enough extra adhesive foil to cover the width of the edges.
Cut the pieces of adhesive foil for the surfaces of your chest of drawers to size.
Remove the backing paper of your first piece of foil for the body and use the scraper to apply it firmly. You can trim any excess adhesive foil with the utility knife. Go on to cover the entire body of your chest of drawers in this way.
For the styling finish, cover the drawers with alternating pieces of Tico Silver and Anthracite foil.
We did it!
To remove small bubbles that can happen when covering larger surfaces, simply stick a needle into the foil bubble and squeeze out the trapped air with the scraper.
