With a few brushstrokes and a dose of ingenuity, transform your dresser without special advantages into an old-style dresser. So give her moldings, a weathered effect ... so that she takes on a whole new look and a classic style. Level: easy Completion time (excluding drying time): 2h00 Indicative cost : 66.20 euros Necessary material :- 8 old-fashioned handles = 5.40 euros - 1 jar of 0.5 liters of turquoise blue paint = 14 euros - 1 jar of rustic oak stained wax varnish = 16 euros - 1 jar of golden wax = 14 euros - 1 jar of filling plaster = 2.90 euros - 1 decorative wooden molding "pearls" = 6.50 euros - 1 decorative wooden molding = 4.90 euros - 1 tube of neoprene glue = 2.50 euros Step 1: Stylize the dresser -Unscrew the handles. - Recap the handle holes with plaster. -Take measurements of a drawer length. -Report the dimensions on a decorative wooden molding. - Cut to size and repeat the operation as many times as there are drawers. - Point the decorative moldings at the top of each drawer. - Point the fine decorative "pearl" wooden molding at the bottom of the dresser and at the top, on the contours of the tray. Step 2: Give an aged effect -Paint with a sponge with rustic oak tinted wax. -Let dry for two hours then apply a second coat. -Let dry again two hours. -Apply "to the wiped" a layer of turquoise blue paint. -Let dry for two hours. -Skate in some places with golden wax, emphasizing the moldings. -Screw the new handles to the old. The decor touch: Golden wax adds relief to the dresser. The golden particles more reflecting light, it is a discreet but absolutely essential decorative touch! Thanks to Tollens for the painting
