I love the storage possibilities of those clear plastic storage bins. However, as useful as seeing what’s inside a drawer can be, sometimes the mess is just too unsightly to look at every day. Why not create some paper covers that line the front of the drawer?
I’ve got a pink, green, and brown theme going on in this space, so I continued that motif over with my paper choices.
- cardstock scrapbook paper, one patterned design and one plain (one sheet of patterned will do two drawers)
- paper cutter or scissors
- double-sided tape
I used Gracious Living drawer units that have 13″x7″ drawer fronts, but you can adapt this tutorial for other sizes easily.
Here is the final result. This looks much nicer that seeing all sorts of messy gadgets! Want this look? Let’s get started!
The mess was too horrendous, so here’s the final result with just one liner removed. Messy junk doesn’t need to be on display.
Take a 12″x12″ paper and cut it in half.
Cut 1.5″ strips, one for each drawer.
Cut out 1″ strips, two for each drawer.
Using tape, attach the long 1.5″ strip to the top of each paper so that just 1″ sticks out. Then attach the short 1″ strips to each side so that just 0.5″ sticks out.
Insert the liners into your drawers! I had to shave the side measurement a little bit because it was just slightly under 13″x7″. I didn’t even tape them in place because my junk holds it in just fine.
