Re: Cabinet makeover

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @DesKyrillidis. It's wonderful to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing this lovely project.

You've really given that cabinet a new lease on life! With the decoupaging, do you just glue the print on with something like PVA glue? I'm keen to hear more about that process.


We look forward to hearing more about all your projects around the home and garden. Please reach out anytime you need assistance or have something to share with the community.


See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!

Re: Cabinet makeover

Hi Mitch, yes I used pva glue on the drawer cabinet and then again on top of the paper. 

First I sprayed water on the wrapping paper then sponged it off before applying the paper to the glue. This stops it from wrinkling. 

Happy that it is no longer going into landfill.
