Step 3: Peel a few inches of the backing off and begin applying the film to the back of the drawer.

A trend we’ve loved lately is the rustic décor trend, where distressed wood and vintage details are mixed elegantly throughout your home for an area that’s not only natural but both warm and inviting. Looking for a way to incorporate this into our own space, we decided to refresh some wooden stools to give them a worn finish that had a fresh, beachy chic vibe.
One of our favorite Fablon designs; we were excited to finally use the Scrapwood Peel and Stick Liner! A beautifully weathered print, this sticky back plastic was able to give the stools an antique look that was both rustic and timeless.
We first covered the tops of the stools, removing any excess film with a craft knife as we went. After the tops, we continued to install the sticky back plastic on each of the four sides, making eight sides total between the two stools.
So easy, this simple décor upgrade changed the look of the adjoining bar top, bringing a cottage inspired look to our kitchen with a beautiful organic air.
Create a lovely room statement with this vintage inspired décor project that uses a variety of Fablon products. By mixing and matching prints, we made over a simple wooden bookcase and transformed it into a stylish new accessory.
Step 1: Measure the height and width of each individual shelf
Step 2: Cut out each liner to your shelf’s dimensions (adding ½” or so to your overall dimensions in case of any mistakes)
Step 3: Install each liner while paying special attention to air bubbles (a credit card or smoothing tool will help to erase any that occur!)
Step 4: Remove any excess material with a craft knife
Not just for bookshelves, sticky back plastic can be used to refresh the look of an array of different surfaces such as coffee tables, dressers, cabinets, night stands and more. Take a more modern approach with a contemporary design or stay basic with a solid color, either way you have a beautiful new piece of furniture to enjoy.
Use your laptop as an accessory by covering it in your favorite Fablon print! This easy craft idea helps you transform the plain exterior of your computer by giving it a beautiful designer upgrade. Choose between animal prints and patchworks, pretty stencil designs and lovely damasks.
The only tools you need are your laptop, the sticky back plastic of your choice and a craft knife! We suggest first positioning the liner the way you would like it to appear on your computer. Some designs like the Scrapbook liner we used for this project have varying patterns throughout, so we placed it to display certain details we liked such as the quote “Look on the Bright Side of Life”.
Once you’ve properly applied your sticky back plastic, the next step is to carefully trace the outline of your laptop with a craft knife. Pay special attention to the round corners, as it is easy to slip and make a mistake. Once you’ve finished the front of your computer, flip it around to install the back.
We chose two different designs because we liked the vintage look of pairing two complimentary patterns together; however one roll of sticky back plastic can easily cover both the front and back!
