Update Storage Drawers With Duct Tape

An easy and very inexpensive way to update clear, see-through Storage Drawers, is to use colorful, patterned Duct Tape and there are so many different types, colors and even textures available in the craft stores now.
I have had this particular Unit for years in which I keep a lot of, mostly junk, but necessary papers etc as well. It used to be hidden under my desk, but since I no longer have a craft room, the desk moved and there is no space for this Drawer, but I do need to keep it around.
Above is a photo of how the Storage Drawers looked before the small Duct Tape Make-over ~ real ugly and a huge eyesore.
I hope you will visit the blog where I share a few good tips which I have found very helpful, and also why I did not go the usual way with pretty paper on the insides !

    This stated they were bins and then they were called drawers and showed they had handles

      She didn't say anything about bins. The picture is self-explanatory!

      I stick the tape on real slowly and gently squeeze down as I go along to remove any bubbles. But these drawers are really smooth and straight therefore it is not prone to wrinkle
