In our last post of this series we took a common chair and turned it into something special with Scotch™ Expressions™ Magic Tape. Today we’ll show you just how unique you can get by taking the same chair and giving it a totally different look.
Scotch™ Expressions™ Tape can easily take a common piece of furniture and turn it into a truly unique piece. This chair becomes a key feature in an office space or dorm room with a few precisely placed embellishments.
Scotch™ Expressions™ Tape is a great, non-permanent solution because it’s repositionable, colourful and doesn’t require you to paint or puncture the surface. Transform your furniture into something new with your favourite colours and patterns.
TIME NEEDED: Approximately 1 hour
Scotch® Brand Supplies:
- Scotch™ Expressions™ Magic™ Tape, Lime Green
- Scotch™ Expressions™ Magic™ Tape, Tribal
- Utility knife
- Cutting mat
Plan 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.
Measure. Use your ruler to find the center of the chair back, this will ensure your design is properly laid out from the beginning
Center the design. Once you have your center apply a strip of Scotch™ Expressions™ Magic™ Tape in Tribal vertically. Trim the tape at the edges with your utility knife for a clean look. Add a strip to each side of the centered piece, lining up the tapes pattern.
Add some detail. Apply a single line of Scotch™ Expressions™ Magic™ Tape in Lime Green horizontally around the seat of the chair. Be sure to trim the ends where the patterns meet to keep the design neat.
Continue the line. Carry the horizontal line all the way around the chair seat for a finished look!
EXPERT TIP: Scotch™ Expressions™ Magic™ Tape is semi-transparent, so applying it on light or white surfaces, and not overlapping patterns keeps colours looking bright.
