Chest of Drawers Makeover

6/19/2013 04:15:00 pm

Dieses praktische Schubladending stammt auch aus meinem Elternhaus und obwohl ich es so unendlich praktisch fand, fand ich es auch etwas hässlich, so wie es war. Wasserflecken sind nicht so meins. Ran ging's also ans Basteln!

This very practical chest of drawers is also from my parents' house and even though I thought it was so incredibly handy, I also thought it was a bit ugly as it was. Water stains are just not my kind of thing. So I went ahead and got crafty!





Zuerst wollte ich die Schubladen einkleiden. Dazu die Vorderseite auf ein Blatt Papier legen und die Umrisse sowie das Loch nachzeichnen (schwarze Linien). Dann die Linien verlängern und wegschneiden (im Bild die roten Linien).

Firstly I wanted to cover the drawers. To do this, I put the front onto a piece of paper and drew around the outside as well as the hole (black lines). Then extend the lines and cut away (the red lines in the picture).






Jetzt die Vorderfläche auf die Schublade kleben und darauf achten, dass die Löcher übereinander sind. Das eingeschnittene Papier nach innen biegen und mit Klebeband befestigen - wie man sieht, habe ich dazu die Schublade auseinandergefaltet, damit ich besser rankomme.

Now stick the paper onto the front of the drawer and make sure that the two holes are aligned. Fold the cuts in the paper inwards and adhere with tape - as you can see, I unfolded the drawer a bit for that so I could reach it better.




Jetzt alle Seiten festkleben.

Now adhere all the sides.



Die Oberfläche habe ich mit einem Rest Geschenkpapier beklebt, den ich mal von meiner lieben Schwester bekommen habe. Die überstehenden Enden mit einem Cuttermesser wegschneiden.

I covered the surface with a bit of wrapping paper that I had once gotten from my beloved sister. Cut away the excess with a stanley knife.




Zuletzt habe ich aus dem überschüssigen Geschenkpapier sowie laminiertem weißen Papier kleine Schildchen geschnitten. Die weißen Labels beschriften und mit doppelseitigem Klebeband befestigen - so kriegt man sie wieder ab, sollte man umsortieren!

At last, I cut labels from the left over wrapping paper as well as white laminated paper. I labelled the labels (ha!) and adhered them using double sided tape - if I ever want to reorganise the chest of drawers, I can easily remove them!





Und fertig! Ein fast neues Schubladenregal für nur ein paar Cent!

And done! An almost new chest of drawers for almost no money!
