Do it! Upcycle a sideboard
1 Protect the area not being painted by masking it off. then prep the area that will be painted by lightly sanding all over. Wipe off any dust. 2 choose your paint – chalk paint will give a super-matt finish, eggshell or satinwood are durable options with a low sheen, and gloss will give a hard-wearing, high shine effect. 3 Paint two to three coats to provide an even finish. 4 to add the wallpaper backing, remove any handles or shelves (depending on where you’re applying the paper). cut the wallpaper to size, apply an adhesive such as wallpaper paste or Pva glue to the area, position the wallpaper, and carefully smooth out any air bubbles. 5 neaten any untidy edges with a Stanley knife. once the sideboard is completely dry, re-fit the handles or shelves.
