20 FURNITURE APPLIQUES that will keep you inspired

 

Appliques and wood decorations are a fun and clever way to add ornate design to a furniture or cabinet project. Wood
appliques can usually just be glued into place. When you start thinking outside of the box you will
need something stronger to mount cast iron ornaments like
on this blue dresser 






You can cut wood appliques to get different looks
 


These 6 drawers were embellished with
plastic appliques made from garden fencing
(#3)                                                 (#4)

   

 


These antique door decorations look quite different depending how they are finished
 (#5)                                                (#6)

  
    

Metal decorations need to be attached with screws like these next cast iron embellishments
(#7)                                                   (#8)

  


I've re-purposed these ornate pieces
from other unwanted furniture

When you have left and right appliques,
turn them to see all the different possibilities
(#10)

  


Check if that thrift store picture frame will work
as an applique on your next furniture project



Headboards are a great place to add
appliques to define your style
(#12)                                             (#13) 

  


These double urns and corner appliques 
were perfect cover ups for some old holes in the wood
(#14)                                                   (#15)

  


You can even use an applique to embellish 
a glass door by sticking it with double sided tape
(#16)

  
  

Make custom appliques with bakable polymer clay 
like these one-of-a-kind key hole escutcheons
(#17)



These embellishments above and below this mirror are parts
 from a plastic spoon rake found at a second hand store




Appliques make a romantic statement on the
bottom edge of dressers and nightstands
(#19)  


Customize the look by cutting the wood to
the shape of the decorations

 

I've used appliques to hide old screw holes or damage to
 wood. Appliques can change the shape of furniture
and even change the era it may seem to belong to.
