When I moved into my new home my goal was to declutter everything that I didn’t need and line all my drawers. I was surprised at how expensive pretty drawer liners are. Eventhough no one will see my inisde of the drawers, it’s something that I wanted to do for myself. I discovered that I could use my left over wallpaper. Even if you don't have any wallpaper its still a cheaper solution than buying liners in

Step 1:Measuring

Measuring the drawers to get dimensions. Take the level and put it on the wallpaper where you are going to cut. This will guarantee a good cut.

Step 2: Adhesive

After cutting, take the sheets of wallpaper and turn it over on the reverse side and add 4 strips of adhesive. Put the adhesive on four ends. Put pressures on the wallpaper so it sticks well.

Tip: If you don't put presures the wallpaper will not stick well.

Step 3: Test

Keep the drawers open for a few hours before you add stuff on them. This will test which wallpaper needs more adhesive. I used scotch reusable adhesive strips, almost any strips work.
