Gold and Glitz: Bench Makeover

Dipped furniture has been a much-loved current design trend. From stools to ceramics, artists have been creating pieces that appear to have been dipped in a contrasting colour. This project re-creates that trend in a quick and easy manner, perfect for any DIY enthusiast looking for their next project!

We love the way the Gold Washi tape adds some glitz! Placed in a foyer (or anywhere in the home for extra seating), this bench adds some Holiday glamour!

1200x1200_BenchGold_Step1Plan and prep. Choose your colour scheme and your product. If you would like to replicate the design we have featured in this project, simply refer to list above. This tutorial will assume you’ve selected these items.

1200x1200_BenchGold_Step2Cut to length. Prepare lengths of Scotch™ Expressions™ Washi tape in Gold to strips of an appropriate length for the leg you will be wrapping. Your length will wrap the entire circumference of the leg. For this bench we used 3.5 in. strips.
1200x1200_BenchGold_Step3Start at the bottom. Once you have several strips of tape prepared you can add them to the legs of your bench. Start at the bottom of one leg and wrap from the rear of the leg around the front and back to where you started. Overlap the two ends of the piece, trimming if necessary. Continue this process, stacking each layer on the other, leaving no gaps between the strips. Once you have covered about half of the leg place the next strip of tape on a bit of an angle. Fill any spaces with extra strips of tape and trim. Repeat on the other three legs.

1200x1200_BenchGold_Step4EXPERT TIP: Maintain the angle you created on the first leg and carry it through to the remaining legs, this helps create the illusion of the whole piece of furniture having been dipped in paint!
