Your chest of drawers serves you loyally day in and day out, storing, organizing, sorting, hiding, presenting, and displaying your belongings, while keeping them at the ready. It’s high time to show your gratitude to this versatile piece of furniture. How? With some DIY styling using geometric patterns, one of the hottest interior design trends right now. The geometric look is happening everywhere – with circles, diamonds, rectangles, and triangles on fabrics, wallpaper, flooring and, of course, furniture, too. And what furniture designers at international exhibitions can do, you can too. The geometric look can lend your furniture an incredibly attractive style update. What’s more, by doing it yourself you’ll get a maximum wow effect with minimum cost and effort. So, why not take the plunge and see how great geometric patterns can look in your home?
You will need…
First, measure the outside dimensions of the entire front of your chest of drawers and transfer that outline to the backing paper of your d-c-fix® adhesive film.
Next, draw a triangle pointing downward in your dimensioned sketch. The size of the triangle is up to you. You can draw it extending right down to the bottom edge of your chest of drawers, or only part-way down.
Now, cut out the elements of your large triangle so they can be affixed to your chest of drawers.
Now, comes the next step. Remove the backing paper from every adhesive film element, and then affix the individual parts of the triangle to the front of each drawer front, using the smoother.
If your geometric shape runs over any handles on your chest of drawers, use the cutter knife to carefully cut a small cross in the adhesive film at the handle bores of the removed handles. This allows the handles to be easily reattached afterward.
