Decorative objects in a splendid new look
Turn an old chest of drawers into a wonderful showpiece!
Have you got an old chest of drawers in the attic that would be a shame to throw away? Turn it into a wonderful showpiece!
Put rubber gloves on and protect your mouth and nose using a breathing mask. Apply the paint remover using a wide paintbrush. Leave it to soak in for about half an hour. It is best to remove the paint outdoors or to take the chest of drawers to a commercial paint stripping service.
Push off the softened paint using a scraper. Repeat this process until the wooden structure is uncovered. Tip: If the chest of drawers has slats with decorated or profiled surfaces, it is better to use a clean wire brush or steel wool (but never on oak wood!) instead of a scraper.
Now sand down the chest of drawers using a multifunction sander.
Then thoroughly remove dust and apply a wood preservative.
Once it has dried, coat the chest of drawers with wood varnish or paint (always in the direction of the grain). Leave it to dry again and then apply a second coat.
