Remake an Aging Standby Get sentimental with your furniture makeover. Create oversize stencils with contact paper by enlarging words or graphics on a computer or trace freehand designs onto contact paper and cut out. Peel off the backing and adhere to furniture base-coated in white. Paint the wardrobe in an earthy tone, let dry, and peel away the contact paper. Drill an oversize allium shape on the doors and fill in the design with backstitched yarn and wool roving.
