DIY plastic cabinet renovation

You don’t need to throw old things. You need to think about what could you do to renew this. Now, we have an old plastic drawer.

First of all, you need to paint it to white. You may need to paint a couple of layers. It’s better to wait a couple of hours between these layers. Acrylic paint will do well.

Now, it’s time to a choose a pattern. You may use a soft, pastel pattern to make decoupage. This pattern belongs to Designer Sanderson; a fabric wallpaper pattern. Exact name and code number is “Sanderson Adele DCAVAD204”.

After choosing the pattern, print it out to A4 paper. You’ll need 15 pages to cover this kind of drawer. Measure, cut and glue them with decoupage glue or Mod Podge. Let them dry completely. After this, varnish it. You may use a matte spray lacquer or a standart liquid one. 3 or 4 layers will be needed. It’s better to wait 2 hours between layers.

You can decorate it as you wish; for example you can use braids, beads, ropes. And laces of course.

It looks amazing, right?

If you have an old piece of furniture, you can turn them into new and attractive ones. Just think and take it as a cool project.
