HAVANA HASINA DRAWERS
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- Chest of drawers
- Havana Hasina Fabric Range (30cm per drawer, depending on your drawer dimensions and the fabric width)
- Tape measure
- Staple gun and staples
If you need inspiration for this project, check out these Hasina fabrics available at Spotlight:
- Havana Yarn Dyed Hasina Fabric Beige 150 cm
- Havana Yarn Dyed Hasina Fabric Blue 150 cm
- Havana Yarn Dyed Hasina Fabric Pink 150 cm
- Havana Yarn Dyed Hasina Fabric Teal 150 cm
Step 1 - Use a tape measure to measure the front of your drawers, add 5cm to both the length and height measurements. If you have door handles on your drawers, remove these and measure the position of where they land from the sides.
Step 2 - Once you have your measurements cut out your panels from the Havana Hasina fabrics. If you have handles mark on the right side of the fabric where the door handles will land, snip a small hole using scissors so you can reattach the handles later.
Step 3 - Working on one drawer at a time, hold your fabric up against the drawer ensuring the fabrics right side is facing out. Tuck the excess fabric over the top lip of the drawer and use the staple gun to secure the fabric to the back/inside at the centre and both ends of the drawer.
Step 4 - Now you can work across the top edge with the staple gun, stapling the fabric to your drawer every inch or so apart.
Step 5 - Repeat this same step with the bottom edge of the drawer pulling the fabric slightly so that the fabric lays tight across the front of drawers. Cut off any excess fabric along both the top and bottom edges.
Step 6 - Now you can work on the side of the drawer. Follow the same process as the top and bottom, pulling the fabric tight and stapling in place starting from the centre and working your way to the edges. To neatly secure the corners, pull the excess fabrics from the corners together to make a point and fold the excess down to sit flat against the wood. Staple in place and repeat the same process with the opposite corner.
Step 7 - Repeat steps 3 - 6 with your other drawers until all of them are covered in fabric. If you have handles you can reattached those now through the small holes you made in the fabrics earlier.
