What materials do I need for a DIY faux card catalog makeover?

The materials needed for your DIY faux card catalog makeover will depend on the style and look you’re going for. Some common materials include:

  • A wooden dresser or cabinet: This will serve as the base for your faux card catalog. You can use a pre made dresser or cabinet, or build one from scratch using wood boards.
  • Router, drill, saw: These tools will be used to create the faux drawer fronts on your dresser or cabinet. You may need expert help or DIY tutorials to use these tools effectively.
  • Drawer knobs/pulls: To create the look of small drawers, you’ll need to add drawer knobs or pulls to the front of your cabinet. You can find these at hardware stores or online.
  • Painting tools and supplies: Depending on the finish you want, you’ll need paint, brushes, sandpaper, primer, and other furniture painting tools and supplies to transform your dresser into the card catalog you want.

You can also get ideas on what you need from the makeover you choose to follow. So prepare and gather your supplies before you start for a smooth DIY experience!

How can I customize the look of my faux card catalog?

When making your own faux card catalog piece, you can totally customize the look to fit your personal style. Whether you prefer a rustic farmhouse feel or a sleek and modern aesthetic, you can create a unique and personalized piece for your space.

You can start by thinking about the color scheme you want to incorporate. You can choose to paint your piece a solid color or add some fun patterns and designs. Try using stencils or decoupage techniques to add a bit of extra flair.

Another way to customize the look of your faux card catalog is by choosing different drawer knobs or pulls. You can find so many different styles and designs to add a unique touch to your piece. Mix and match knobs or use all the same for a cohesive look.

And of course, you can decide how many “drawers” you want on your faux card catalog. You can choose to have them all the same size or mix it up with different sized drawers. This will not only add visual interest, but also give you more storage options.

So feel free to create a faux card catalog piece that truly reflects your style!

    I loved watching your video refinishing the Mid Century dresser! I could not find the link to the Pricing Guide you referenced. Would it be possible to email that to me? I would certainly appreciate any help you could send!!
