Cute little vintage desk I repaired and painted today.
This dresser had some damaged laminate did not want to fix it. So removing is a great option.
You will need:
- Metal scrapper
- Paper towels
I bought this iron from the dollar store for $10.00 you don’t want to use your good iron, because you don’t want glue on it.
Set the iron to the highest setting,then apply to the laminate. Leave for about 20 seconds then use the scrapper to remove the laminate. The iron heats the glue underneath and makes it easier to remove.
You can Achieve a great look on your painted furniture using vinyl lettering. You can cut your own or purchase pre-cut vinyl quotes. This particular quote is by Dr. Seuss and I purchased it from Wish.com for very little money.
Finished Childs Desk.
Add Your vinyl Lettering.
Apply Stain right over the vinyl. I always use General Finishes Gel Stains. They are easy to use and they have lots of choices of colors. My ultimate favorite is the Java Gel Stain, and that what was used on here. #GeneralFinishes #DrSeuss
Let it Dr for 24 Hours then use a Razor blade to lift off the vinyl lettering.
I added #GeneralFinishes Satin Top Coat to protect and give just a hint of sheen to the top of the desk.
I used a Barn Red Color Paint by #MissLillianChockPaint and a Brown Glaze to give it a antique look.
Each pillow front is 16×16. Just cut out on the lines and add other fabric to the back to make a great looking pillow. You could also make pictures, quilts seat cushions or anything else out of these designs. Send Pictures if you make anything using my fabric.
