Here we go.. another DIY hack I have attempted!
I introduce to you..... EDGE BANDING HACK.
Now if you are new here... I attempt DIY hacks regularly and share all the details with you as someone who is new and still learning all the things to DIY.
I have questions like "is it worth it"
"Does it really look that way in person"
"Can I really pull it off?"
ALL THE TIME. And I know I am not alone. So go out of my way to try them out and share these details with you. Now if you want to view the other hacks I have attempted and get access to all of the links to supplies I used, be sure to read this post and others on my blog here!
Now EDGE BANDING HACK..
This is also referred to as veneer edging. What exactly is edge bending though? Essentially.. as google states - "In Layman's terms, edge banding is a thin material used to seal the exposed and raw edges of plywood. Heat sensitive adhesive on one side is applied to the board while the other side acts as a barrier against dirt and moisture."
edge banding is made from thinly slices of wood, pre-sanded and layered." There are a few different ways that this is applied but the most common one (in the DIY world) is by ironing it, which is the one we will be discussing today!
However! Emily, my good friend on Instagram, took this another step further and started to use this to accent her pieces of wood and furniture! Basically... you can create cool geometric wood designs, without any power tools!
I learned this hack from her, so be sure to check out her pieces!
