The first step Larisa removed all veneer, which has not be restored. He moves easily, if you put a wet rag on him.


Then carved plates were removed, which did not fit into the concept of the future of a new type of chest. Further, all the details have been carefully covered with soil.


Apply a layout drawing of the future, you can use the most ordinary cardboard cut from a template. For round parts can, for example, take the cover from the pan. Now you only have to paint and cover with protective varnish.

The result had been quite a wonderful chest of drawers. An interesting detail – Furniture handles that successfully mimic the wipers. And of course, the original emblem VW, which gives the dresser a unique charm.
