I know I haven’t shared our full desk with you guys yet, that’s to come, but I wanted to show you how simple it is to line a draw and how much of a difference it makes. Our friend custom-made this desk for us and it has this huge, awesome, drawer that he even added dividers to. The wood on the bottom of the drawer was just raw wood (we didn’t bother to paint IN the drawer as you can tell by the raw dividers).
I had leftover contact paper from this project – and you just wait, it shows up again in another project down the line (can’t. ever. waste.) – so I used it to line the drawers. I simply measured, cut and stuck them in the drawers. The original two rolls of contact paper cost me $5.99 and I’ve certainly used all if it so I’d say it was a good purchase.
Now I’ll admit, I’m not usually one to bother painting or lining drawers, but we open and close this one a million times a day and it lives in our living room so I like the added touch to it. That’s it, 5 minutes and I was done!
Do you guys line drawers? I guess it really depends on the use for me. I did line these drawers way back when…
