Upcycling is all about giving cheap and readily available pieces a new lease of life. Rather than designating your old furniture to the dump, see what it looks like after a bit of TLC and transform old forgotten pieces into new trendy ones.
Using a sheet of A3 we sketched out the outline of the drawers to make a template which we then used to cut the correct size out of our floral scrap-booking paper. Make sure you cut the sheets to the exact size of the drawer, we thought about leaving an extra half inch around the edges that we would fold down but the finish was much better with a clean-cut.
After some generous applications of Mod Podge glue (creates a good bond between paper and metal) and some careful placing, our drawers came to life.
Then all we needed were some quirky ceramics to adorn our new fun focal point!
