Watch out, this one is a real show-stopper: You’re sure to fall in love with your new boho chest of drawers!
You will need…
Measure the top, the sides and the surface area of the front of the top drawer. Transfer these dimensions to the back of the Ribbeck Oak adhesive film and then cut the film pieces to size.
Now measure the dimensions of the other drawers, transfer them to the back of the black adhesive film and cut out the plain film pieces.
For the decorative appliqués in the boho look, draw squares onto the back of the black film and cut them out as well.
Now peel off the backing paper of your Ribbeck Oak film piece for the top drawer front and attach the film to the drawer. Then decorate the newly covered front with the small cut-out squares.
Now it’s time to continue with the other drawers: Cover the fronts of the drawers with the black adhesive film pieces you cut out.
To finish, cover the top and both side surfaces of your chest of drawers with the corresponding film pieces in Ribbeck Oak.
Your new masterpiece in the trendy boho look is ready!
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.
