Add Peel and Stick Wallpaper To Dresser Drawers

46,759 Views

I love my coffee station made from a vintage dresser. There was nothing wrong with our coffee bar per se….but do you know when you have one of the home projects that you finish and it still feels like it is missing something?? But, I think our coffee bar was missing the infusion of character and color that I try to put into everything in our home. It was wonderful, but it needed to be a little more me.

Enter…..peel and stick wallpaper. It is amazing. It adds just amount of color and extra texture to the coffee station. I love that the vintage dresser we use for our coffee station remains in its classic style with the refinished dark coat of stain, but we were able add pops of color by applying the peel and stick wallpaper to the sides of drawers. They are only visible when you pull the drawers out.

Time: 15 Minutes Cost: $30 Difficulty: Easy
This is what our drawers looked like before we added the peel and stick wallpaper.
STEP 1. TRACE DRAWER ON BACK OF WALLPAPER.
Put the drawer on its side and trace all the way around the drawer on the backside of the peel and stick wallpaper. 
STEP 2. CUT OUT DRAWER SHAPE ON THE WALLPAPER.
If anything, you want the paper to be a little larger than the drawer because you can always trim off the extra later.
STEP 3. APPLY THE PEEL AND STICK WALLPAPER TO THE SIDES OF DRAWERS.
The best part about using this peel and stick wallpaper on the sides of the drawers is that it is completely repositionable.
STEP 4. TRIM OFF EXCESS.
Using the rotary cutter, trim off the edges of the peel and stick wallpaper where it hangs over the edge of the drawer. Be sure that you do this on a cutting mat so you don’t scratch the surface below.
STEP 5. SLIDE DOOR BACK IN AND SMILE!
Simply slide the drawer back in your dresser!

    This is a wonderful idea. I never thought of making the sides of drawers appealing, but you did. Good job.

    Now THAT is an idea that's been a long time coming! Easy, beautiful, smart! I've messed up the sides of drawers with being a bit over zealous with my brush and what a fabulous cover up to those ugly mistakes!

    Wow! Great look and terrific quick fix! I just had new countertops installed in my kitchen. I had an estimate for new tile border inserts for the backsplash, which was already done in ceramic tile. Would you believe it? I went to the Dollar Store and bought 5 pkgs. of peel and stick backsplash! 10 hours and $4 later, this is the before and after! $4 compared to $2000…a no brainer for sure!
