Here are the step-by-step instructions for the basket wall:
You have everything you need? Then get started!
Is the surface of the wooden board you have chosen already smooth and wash-down-resistant? Then you can jump straight to step 3!
Sand the untreated wooden board and pre-treat it with a primer.
Thoroughly clean the smooth and wash-down-resistant surface with a cloth.
Now determine the dimensions of the wooden board.
Transfer these measurements to the back of the d-c-fix® wood-look adhesive foil using a pencil and add 1 to 2 cm of overhang to the foil while marking this out.
Now use the d-c-fix® utility knife to cut out the foil, following where you have marked out, including the overhang.
Apply the piece of foil to the wooden board and use the doctor blade to press it down firmly.
Trim the adhesive foil at each corner of the wooden board using scissors and then cover the edges with the foil.
If there is still foil protruding from the back of the wood board, trim it along the edges using the utility knife.
Attach the metal storage baskets to the board using screws.
Small air pockets can form, especially when covering larger surfaces – such as the top and side surfaces here. You can puncture these bubbles with a fine needle and then carefully smooth them out with the squeegee.
