- Washi tape (it's a low-tack, decorative tape)
- Chest of drawers (or you could adapt this DIY for other pieces of furniture)
Step one: decide on your washi tape
Think about what colours and patterns go well together. Here it's a chest of drawers that's being upcycled, so a colour for each drawer has been used. By lining up the reels of tape next to each other, you can decide which combinations you like best.
Step two: start sticking
Start sticking lengths of tape to your drawer, making different sized triangles, squares, and other geometric shapes. Press the tape on by sliding your finger over it. Washi tape is made from paper and sometimes needs a little help adhering correctly. Cut the ends of the tape in neat straight lines for a professional finish.
Continue to press the tape on by sliding your finger over it.
Step three: repeat for the other sections
Simply repeat the process on the remaining drawers, using different coloured tapes to complete your design.
