Make your own Chevron Wash Colour Drawers!

Make your own Chevron Wash Colour Drawers!


Posted 5th June

Spruce up your interiors using a new twist on a classic painting technique with Rust-Oleum Colour Wash paint

The fashionable, pearlescent paint (available in four shades) lightly tints wood, adding bright pops of colour, whilst still displaying the woods natural grain.

By adding beautiful translucent colour to bare or unpainted wood, you can add texture and dimension. 

Here, Rust-Oleum have hacked a set of IKEA RAST drawers, creating a cool chevron feature piece, perfect for a playroom or bedroom.

You will need

Rust-Oleum Colour Wash, Cloud Blue (750ml, £12.99)
Rust-Oluem Colour Wash, Pearly Pink
Tape measure
Masking tape
IKEA RAST drawers or bare wood drawers (£25)

Directions

1. Remove drawer handles and place them to one side.

2. Measure each drawer to find the centre and mark out your chevron design with masking tape, ensuring the drawer edges are covered. Trim any extra tape to give clean lines.

3. Paint the bare wood sections, alternating pink to blue.

4. Remove all masking tape once dry.

5. Remask the chevron design to leave one stripe of bare wood and one stripe of colour in each section.

6. Paint each area again in the same colours, thus giving some sections a second coat. Remove masking tape once dry.

7. Reattach the handles and admire your brand new, bespoke drawers.
