How to Make DIY Drawer Organizers With Always Discreet

132,819 Views
Six months ago I did something I never thought I’d be able to pull off:
I built a DIY bathroom vanity from scratch.
(Surprisingly, it hasn’t fallen apart! YAY!)

And I know this is “mean,” but since I built the vanity, it’s mine. All that drawer space?

Yep, that’s mine, too. Sorry, hubby!

It’s exciting that I finally have personal drawer space to fill with makeup, face cleaners, and personal women’s products–all the stuff my husband doesn’t care about and honestly, doesn’t need to see.

Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $5 Difficulty: Easy
The drawers are pretty deep and actually pull all the way out, so I can store a lot of stuff here.

But drawer organizers are so expensive and hard to buy them in customizable sizes.
So I thought I would take a moment in today’s post and share with you a quick and easy little tutorial on how to make a drawer organizer out of scrapbook paper where you can easily organize your feminine care products in drawers so they’re not sitting out in plain view for your family to see.
(Plus, these organizers are awesome for holding your lipsticks, blush, and more!)
VOILA!

You’ve got a pretty little boxes!
Once I was done, I filled the boxes with Always Discreet pads.

The DIY paper drawer organizer juuuusssst fit! I probably could have made it a little more narrow, but it still works well.

To know the complete list of materials I used and how I measured the paper so the boxes will fit, you can click here to see the whole post.

    these are great. I've been wanting to organize a few drawers around the house, especially my daughter's room, and i think she'll love these. thanks for the link!! just an idea (if the space isn't so tight)... if you make another box but a tad bigger you can make a lid for them so if the kids/hubby look in they don't see the things you want hidden. or you can even make another level on top... extra storage!!

      I'm making $85 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $1120 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss.. Read more Here... http://ow.ly/kzcx30fnamu

      Or even add another layer of boxes on top of your first ones. Using one large box underneath and fabric handles on the sides!

    She just made the organizer boxes, not build the vanity.
    You have to read the postings carefully.
    I just love the organized drawer, hope to do something like that
    as a winter project.

      She did built the vanity herself, maybe learn to read before being so obnoxious in your answers 😜
