Easy DIY Drawers With Paper

3 Materials
30 Minutes

Use paper to makeover your boring drawers. Or use the technique to apply to anything you want! I used gift wrap in this project but you can use scrap booking paper, old books, or newspaper even! The whole project took less than 30 minutes and made such a huge difference.

Gather Supplies

You can use any paper here I have gift wrap. If you don't have modge podge you make it using any white glue. 1 cup glue mixed with 1/3 cup water.

Cut paper to size

Cut the paper to the size of the drawers.

Apply Modge Podge

Apply a thin layer of modege podge to the surface you are putting the paper on using a brush or foam brush either one.

Add Paper

Put your cut piece of paper down and use a credit card to smooth out all wrinkles. Let dry.

Cut off Extra Paper

Cut off any extra paper so the drawer shuts smoothly. Next apply another layer of modge podge on top and let dry.

Put Drawer Back In

Put your drawer back in and admire your handy work!
