Mini chest of drawers, DIY-style!

Transform this mini chest of drawers into a real eye-catcher

Objects made from untreated wood can be given a wonderfully unique design using our acrylic markers, so much so that they’ll blend in perfectly with your furnishings. They come in a choice of 26 colours, from pastels through to vibrant shades. In this idea, we’ve used a mini chest of drawers to show you how easy it is to conjure up a real eye-catcher for your home. The opaque paints are lightfast and won’t fade, meaning you’ll get long-lasting enjoyment from your stylish accessory. We’ve even got a template of a motif for you to print out.
