Transform old into new – a dream in white for your bedroom

Project from Alex -

Has your wardrobe become a bit outdated and you no longer want to look at scratches and marks? The wood finish no longer appeals to you and you are longing for a new look within your own 4 walls? But you don’t want to invest a lot of money? Then this do-it-yourself project is just right for you!  We explain how you can bring new glamour to your bedroom in five simple steps with very little cost.

You will need…

  • A wardrobe
  • Roll of d-c-fix Uni Lack white
  • Scissors
  • Film squeegee and cutter knife from the d-c-fix® film application kit

  • Tape measure
  • Cordless screwdriver
  • Cloth

Let’s go

Step 1

It is easiest if you remove the wardrobe doors in order to carry out the work. Remove the wardrobe handles so that the smooth surface is easier to apply. Clean the surface to which you want to apply the film to obtain a dust and grease-free surface and remove any residues and bumps.

Step 2

First measure the surface that is to be covered with film and allow 2 – 3 cm on each side so that the film is slightly larger than the surface to which it is to be applied. Now you can transfer the measurements to the paper on the back of the film and cut the film with scissors.

Step 3

Get going! Now you can start to apply the film. It is best to use a d-c-fix® film squeegee for this. The black fleece side of the squeegee glides over the film and presses the film gently onto the surface without damaging it.

Start applying the film by removing approx. 5 cm of backing paper from the film and fold it over so that only a few centimetres of the adhesive back of the film is exposed. Place the exposed adhesive surface of the film at one end of the wardrobe door, align the film over the whole surface and then apply pressure over the entire width of the film. If the film is not in the right place, you can carefully remove it again and reapply it. If the film is then in the correct position, you can remove more of the backing paper and use the squeegee to press on the film at the same time. Don’t work too fast – this way you get the best results.

Step 4

If the film is applied and pressed on well to the entire surface, you can remove the excess pieces of film on the edges with a sharp cutter knife. Run the knife blade directly along the edge in order to obtain a clean and straight edge.

Step 5

Now screw on the handles again and hang the doors. Your new wardrobe is now finished!

You’re done!
