A unappealing yellowing melamine dresser becomes spicy and charmingly oh-so-British when it encounters a flashy poster.
The trick is to mix different styles: liberty print with punk rock, a squat armchair with a bass guitar amp.
Remove the dresser's handles, let them soak in a tub of warm soapy water. Clean the dresser and dry it with a soft cloth.
If the drawer bottoms are bent out of shape, as is often the case, remove the back panel, slide out the drawer bottom,
flip it around, and then slide it back in. Then reassemble the back panel. The drawers are like new!
You can cover the bottom of the drawer with wallpaper or paint.
Measure the width of the drawer and subtract 3/8 inch (1 cm).
Using a craft knife, cut your poster to this width, taking care to center the design you want.
Then, measure the height of each drawer and again subtract 3/8 inch (1 cm). Cut strips of this height.
Between two strips, leave a 3/8 inch (1 cm) space, so the poster design will line up correctly once the strips are glued to the dresser.
Don't forget a strip for the dresser's baseboard.
Glue each poster piece using wallpaper glue (you can also use rice glue).
Wipe away visible traces of glue using a damp sponge. Let dry before replacing the dresser handles.
Using a basic home printer, you can create your own poster. See the following link: rasterbator.
