Chevron and chalkboard on HEMNES Bureau

Materials: Acrylic paints, 3D powder, ground coat, paintbrush, sponge roller, masking tape, polisher, varnish

Description: First I polished the front doors. I mixed chalkboard paint by myself, which contains 2 pieces acrylic paint and 1 piece 3D powder. After coating I put on three layers of chalk paint and finally polished the surface. So now one can draw, write or just scribble on it.

To achieve chevron pattern I masked the cupboard inside, and painted it. Finally I varnished the surface.

At last I replaced the knobs with more elegant ones.
