HERE’S AN EASY WAY TO FANCY UP YOUR BORING FURNITURE! THIS PRODUCT IS A GAME CHANGER MY FRIENDS! [VIDEO]
If you’re looking for an easy way to fancy up plain or boring furniture, this product is a game-changer! BENDABLE wood appliques, molds, and trim by WoodUBend! There are over 3000 designs to choose from for every sort of furniture style or DIY project you can possibly imagine.
Here’s what I used mine on. A vintage cedar chest. I don’t often find wooden chests to work on so this was a real treat. It’s a charmer even in its’ “before” state…
To fancy it up, I added two of these WoodUBend corner appliques.
Look at the difference they made!
And because I also wanted to test the “bendability” of these, here’s a cute little plant holder made from a plastic pot. I created a video sharing how easy it is to do this!

HOW TO USE WOODUBEND MOLDINGS
This was my very first time using this product, so I don’t claim to be an expert. I’m sure the more times I use these decorative molding, the more tips and tricks I’ll discover. But what I can say is it’s an easy process and all you need is some wood glue and heat.
HERE’S A SHORT VIDEO OF THE ENTIRE MAKEOVER:

STEP 1 – Clean and Prep
Just like with every makeover, the first step is to make sure the surface is clean so these appliques and trim have a dirt and oil free surface to stick to.
STEP 2 – Heat & Bend
I used an inexpensive $13.99 heat gun from Walmart but a hairdryer will work just as well. Applying heat, the WoodUBend becomes flexible. You can bend it around any form you like… so amazing!!
STEP 3 – Glue & Add Heat
I used this wood glue and added a generous amount on the flat side of the applique. I position it on the front of my cedar chest and holding it in place, applied a little more heat. This activates the WoodUBend so it adheres beautifully whether on a flat or curved surface.
STEP 4 – Paint / Finish
Once the glue dries and its adhered, you can treat it as you would any wood applique. These moldings can be painted, stained, drilled, glazed, waxed or sanded!
STEP 5 – Enjoy the NEW look!!!
Here are a few more pics of my painted cedar chest…
