Clear Storage Unit Makeover Tutorial

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.
