Following on from her ‘Flower Chest’ project, Interior Designer Karen Lane, has rescued an old cabinet from her local second-hand shop and given it the love and attention needed to turn it into a beautiful piece of furniture. Here’s how she did it!
- The cabinet was first rubbed down and then undercoated.
- After another light sanding two top coats of emulsion were painted before the flower (cut from wallpaper) was applied using PVA.
- The whole body was then painted with several coats of clear satin varnish to protect it from wear and tear.
- Finally the inside was lined with an attractive but practical, scrubbable wallpaper.
Karen, “I am very happy with the finished result and now have another item to add to my range of hand decorated, recycled furniture.”
