Upcycling idea for an old chest of drawers

A stylish new look for planters

Old furniture is far too useful to be thrown away. With the right inspiration, you can easily create something new and stylish – like these eye-catching planters made from an old chest of drawers. If you've got some old drawers lying in your attic, it's time to dig them out. With the help of edding's acrylic concrete effect spray, you can give the drawers and the unit itself a fresh modern look in a few simple steps. The neutral colour combines perfectly with other shades, so no matter what your décor, your new planter is sure to look perfect in your home.
