Fun at your desk: style upgrade for all practical helpers!

Project from Alex -

Here’s a spontaneous resolution for the start of 2024: give your home office space an upgrade! Our DIY makeover involving a mini chest of drawers, pen cup, notepad box and storage tray in a trendy cork look brings you more style, calm and focus when working. This look was already very fashionable in the 1980s and is currently enjoying a strong revival in home trends! And with the dc-fix® “Cork” adhesive foil, you can achieve this casual, natural retro look with ease. We’re convinced: this makeover with cork will make both your desk and you happy!

You will need…

  • d-c-fix® “Cork” adhesive foil
  • d-c-fix® application kit with smoothing blade and utility knife
  • Pencil

  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Ruler

Let’s go!

With these tips, your DIY will be a success:


You have everything you need? Then get started!

Tip 1

The object you want to stick on has curves? Then it’s best to apply the foil all around, piece by piece, peeling the backing paper off the foil just a little at a time, applying it and then pressing it down firmly with the smoothing blade.

Tip 2

Easy corner work – so that the edges, e.g. notepad holder, become beautiful: Cut the excess foil at the corners with scissors and then fold the foil over.

Tip 3

Any excess foil on the drawers of the mini chest of drawers can be easily trimmed off using the utility knife.

You’re done!
