Joanne Kelly from Think Contemporary just lately despatched us an unique design challenge. Right here is her description: When I discovered this tallboy stashed away behind my grandmothers loft in Galway, I couldn´t consider my luck. I knew immediately that myself and Anthony might do one thing superb with it. We needed to create one thing utterly totally different utilizing a brand new materials. After numerous analysis we determined to go down the street of utilizing printed vinyls, which has now began to turn out to be a trademark for Assume Modern. Then all we needed to do was restore and upcycle this lovely piece. I stripped away the previous end utilizing methylated spirits and metal wool. Then it was a matter of eradicating the handles and making use of the primary undercoat. As soon as the undercoat was dry, I sanded it down utilizing a low grade sandpaper and utilized a second undercoat. This gave a great base for the highest coat.
The subsequent step was to use a satin end water-based mostly paint, permitting it to dry earlier than sanding it once more after which giving it a second coat. After leaving the paint to dry for a few days, I then utilized the vinyl to the entrance for a unusual impact. I sprayed the unique handles with gold paint and reused them. Make sure to take a look at the final photograph for a picture of how this tallboy seemed earlier than the conversion.
