DIY geometric drawers

Posted by TheDocraftsTeam, 19 Jul, 2016

When it comes to upcycling and home décor, masking tape is your best bud. The simple sticky strips can help you achieve striking geometric patterns on a plethora of surfaces; check out these Bare Basics drawers! Pick and choose hues to suit your home and hey presto, you've got a snazzy new storage solution.

1. Use a pencil to roughly sketch out your design onto the drawers. Do this lightly so that when it comes to painting over the lines they don’t show through.

2. Using low tack tape, mark out your design. If parts of your design overlap, start by masking out the shape that sits behind the smaller ones.

3. Paint within the tape lines, applying two coats to get a solid colour. Remove the tape once dry. If creating an overlapped design, wait for the previous layer to completely dry before applying the next one.

4. Once all the paint is dry, punch two holes in the front of each drawer and tie a length of twine to create a handle. Slot all of the drawers in place and they're ready to use!
