Over the last few weeks, I have spent a lot of time organizing and reorganizing pretty much all of the drawers in our home for the images for the book. Unfortunately, I have to wait until the book comes out to share all of the drawers but I can share a quick trick that I did for my office drawer for making pretty DIY drawer liners. This is a super easy way to transform pretty patterned wrapping paper, wallpaper or fabric into a heavy duty drawer liner.
For my office drawer, I wanted to use this pretty scalloped designed coral and pink wrapping paper:
I began by measuring my office drawer length and depth:
I then cut my wrapping paper a little more than the measurements of the drawer:
I removed the paper off of the back and attached the adhesive to my wrapping paper starting on one side by going an inch beyond the wrapping paper and attaching the sticky part to the floor to give me better leverage:
I was relieved to see that I could lift and rework the Contact Paper without it tearing the paper where I had pockets of air. It came right up and I could reposition. After a couple times of lifting and smoothing, I got it completely flat and then measured and cut down to my exact measurements.
I then placed it in the drawer and fit just perfect and it was heavy weight enough that it was smooth and doesn’t move around:
I also did a couple drawers with pretty fabric as well and it worked perfectly! I was thinking that for kitchen drawer liners, I could add another pieces of Contact Paper to the back side of my paper and fabric as well to make it moisture resistant. So many possibilities for an easy way to get of pop of pretty in drawers and in cabinets.
Thanks for stopping by today guys and if you’re interested in seeing some sneak peeks of what I’m shooting for the book, I have been sharing little snippets each day on Instagram here.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
