This month we're lov­ing the cowhide Mon­tana chest of draw­ers by atkin & thyme, so we've been in­spired to put an easy spin on the de­sign to cre­ate our own upcycled piece. us­ing wall­pa­per sam­ples to em­u­late the quirky mismatched ef­fect is a smart way to keep the project cost down.

1 Re­move the draw­ers from the unit and un­screw the han­dles. Spray the body of the chest, the sides of each drawer and the han­dles with the paint. Leave to dry be­fore ap­ply­ing a sec­ond coat.

2 Once dry, sit each drawer up­right on the floor and lay the wall­pa­per sam­ples on top to work out the best de­sign. Cut to size and brush on PVA glue to stick them in place, smooth­ing out any air bub­bles as you go. Once dry, push holes gen­tly through the paper and reat­tach the han­dles.
