DIY Drawer Liner Tutorial

I'm a big fan of DIY projects that are economical, functional, and durable-- like past the life of the photo-shoot, if you know what I mean.  After purchasing and installing ready-made drawer liners in Oliver's dresser, I thought it would be fun to see if I could come up with a less expensive, more customized version for Avery's drawers too.

You guys-- this is a gratifying project. It took about ten minutes to complete, and came out looking neat, tidy, and pretty cute if I do say so. And the paper options are pretty endless. You could use scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, old maps,  or print your own!

I found this great heavy handmade wrapping paper at World Market. You could definitely just line your drawers with paper, but for kid's drawers, I want those suckers to be durable and stay in place. And these do!

Scroll all the way down for the full directions.


  1. so cute.
    i'm as amazed by your slick tutorials (photos, labels, step by step instructions) as i am by your creations :)


  2. ditto to emily! looks so cute!

  3. Although it seems obvious, I never would have thought to put the contact paper on the pretty paper BEFORE you put it in the drawer. Love this idea, and it's perfect timing since I'm just getting the nursery ready for our little guy.

  4. Great idea. Also, where are those beaaautiful shoes from? If you can part with the info.

    1. They are salt water sandals. I usually order them from endless shoes but you can find them all over.

  5. Where did you get those drawer pulls/knobs?? I've been searching everywhere for that color. Adorable!

    Great project! Can't wait to try.

  6. Wow I love that pattern you chose! So beautiful. I never realized shelf liners could be so pretty! I think I'll start inspecting my drawers and selecting some for a makeover!

  7. This is a great web site. Good sparkling user interface and very informative blogs. I will be coming back in a bit, thanks for the great article. I have found it enormously useful. ,
