I cut hexagon patchwork pieces from the variety of patterned paper using a Cady craft 3-inch hexagon punch.
Pretty Patchwork Chest of Drawers Make-over
I thought this old chest of drawers was looking a bit sad and needed makeover to fit the newly decorated space I moved it to.
I wanted the patchwork quilt look so decided to try with paper decoupage using a hexagon paper punch!
just popping the paper squares into the punch and pressing firmly down on handle to cut is very enjoyable and perfect hexagons pop out.( they collect In underside drawer which opens )
I begin using mod podge seal hard coat straight onto the drawer surface and arrange the hexagon papers pieces in a pattern . Making sure they are right up close together with no gaps.
Continue to place them on surface of drawers and create a balance of colours patterns to give a desired look. I coat the top of each hexagon to create a durable finish.
Trim the overhang edges of paper to look neat.
When all the drawers are decoupaged and drying I get on with painting the top and sides of the drawer chest. I choose Rust Oleum furniture chalky paint in blue.
I paint two coats of blue chalk paint along sides and front and top.
The drawers and chest are left to dry.
Then assemble back together and admire this Great makeover!
