DIY Drawer Liner ~
I received a piece of furniture secondhand, that was in decent shape. I think it was originally used as a desk, but I use it as a coffee station. With a bit of TLC, and some simple DIY projects, I plan on turning it in to an art studio/station. I’m not sure if I’d like to paint the entire unit, but I would like to refresh the piece a bit.
DIY Drawer Liner Project
The drawers were a bit stained, so I wanted to line them before putting anything inside. Instead of purchasing a drawer liner, I decided to make my own.
Some ideas for what to use to line your drawers:
-old calendar pages
-drawings or paintings children have made
The drawer ‘before’.
I decided to bring some spring-time colors in to my home, if only in my drawers.
Materials Needed For Your Drawer Liner Project
What I used:
-large sketch paper
You can use any kind of paint you’d like—just make sure that the paper you use is thick enough to handle it.
I measured the inside of the drawers and folded/cut the large sketch paper to size.
If your drawers get a lot of use, I would recommend using a more durable material, or laminating the painting. This can be done at most office supply shops or copy shops.
You can see that I went with a general spring theme, using blue, purple, green and yellow. The thing I like about making drawer liners like this is that I can change them out seasonally. I know it’s still technically winter, but I’m ready for spring to start, aren’t you?
I went with a simple design for the second drawer. Which one do you like better?
