HERE’S HOW TO REMOVE WOODUBEND MOULDINGS SO YOU CAN REUSE THEM ON ANOTHER PROJECT | YOUTUBE VIDEO
Hi beautiful friends and thanks for joining me for Trash To Treasure Tuesday… the last one of the year! In keeping with tradition, I’m sharing another version of this curb-shopped washstand. Last year I used Woodubend mouldings to spruce it up. This year I’m sharing how EASY it is to remove these Woodubend Mouldings so they can be used on another project!

And here’s last year’s Christmas makeover using white paint and Woodubend mouldings. If you’d like to see ALL the previous holiday makeovers, I’ve included all the prior looks in the “Related Posts” at the end of this tutorial.

CHRISTMAS WASHSTAND 2023
Here’s how this washstand all came together…
HOW TO REMOVE WOODUBEND
There are many reasons you may want or need to remove your Woodubend.
- Placing them in the wrong spot on your project.
- Your furniture didnt sell and you’d like to create a new look.
- You’ve created something for yourself but like you’d like to change it up.
- Whatever the reason, Woodubend is EASY to remove and use on another project!
What you’ll need is HEAT and a spatula or putty knife to pry the Woodubend up.
I used my heat gun to warm up the Woodubend on this washstand. The Woodubend was adhered to this project for a full year, but the heat loosened up the glue and made the Woodubend soft and pliable. While the moulding was still warm, I used my painter’s multi-tool, to pry off the moulding. You can also use a spatula, putty knife, or anything flat enough to get under the moulding to remove it. Once the Woodubend is removed, it will cool down and harden. Then it is ready to be stored in a bag or box for your next project. Easy as 1-2-3!
- Heat the Woodubend Moulding
- Pry it off with a spatula or putty knife
- Cool and store to reuse on another project
These will ALL be used on another project. I can go ahead and repaint them, stain them, bend them, cut them, and use them exactly as I would a brand new one right from the package!

Once all the Woodubend was removed, I gave this washstand an overall scuff sanding with my orbital sander. As of writing this post, this Bosch Sander is 25% OFF!
To paint this piece, I picked Conch SILK All-In-One Mineral Paint. A big thank you to Monique who suggested PINK in the comments section for this year’s Christmas Washstand Makeover!
Because this washstand is an exercise in creativity and a variety of looks each holiday season, I didn’t sand everything perfectly flush as you can see below, but this paint went on beautifully regardless. This Conch Pink is such a gorgeous color. It’s inspired by a conch shell. I applied two coats for full coverage.
CHRISTMAS CHEER STENCIL
I left the paint to dry and came down the next day to add this Christmas Cheer Stencil design. This stencil comes with four different Christmas stencils that can be used individually or collaged together.
I used a spray adhesive to stick the stencil onto the door panels but I still had to hold down the edges as the stencil was larger than the panel inserts. Rather than brush or roll on the gold paint, I used my Airbrush Kit to airbrush the stencil on. It sprays beautifully and I love the result. You may remember the first time I Airbrushed a stencil on this dresser here.
Once the washstand was stenciled, I added on these brushed brass knobs and this washstand was complete!
FINISHED CHRISTMAS WASHSTAND
Here’s the finished look. What do you think?!
I think it looks super sweet in pink! The gold Christmas Cheer Stencil gives it a cheerful holiday look!
It looks very different from last year and the Woodubend is all ready for a brand new project. No waste!
I can’t wait to hear what you think of it’s NEW LOOK!
