Storage Tower Redo

2 Materials
1 Hour

These rubbermaid storage containers are great for just about everything. Especially for crafts and such. But, they are not very nice looking. You can easily modify them to suit any decor.

I started with this five drawer one. Gave it a good clean to make sure the paper would stick.

Once again, I had left over self adhesive paper so I just used that. I purchased these strips at the Dollar Store so this project was not only easy and quick, very cheap!

I started by measuring the paper and using a square to make sure the lines were straight.

I did leave a overlap so I could just trim to size once on.

After removing the paper, I made sure to position in the right place, using the top of the drawer as my straight edge to put the paper against. I then smoothed it down.

The second piece was smaller so I just cut the paper to size on each side, laid it out, then trimmed the bottom piece. I made sure to wrap the paper along the edges for a continuous piece.

Once done, I put the drawer back in to see how it looked. Good to go!

I continued on with all four drawers.

And just like that, instant update. Nothing fancy but I definately like the way it looks now.

You could use so many different patterns and colors. Even Mod Podge wall paper.

So easy!

    How about spray painting the area between the drawers so it doesn’t look plastic?

    Great project. I also have a lot of these. What I would love to see is your craft room. Maybe a tour? I really need some ideas.
