This morning I found this:
It's just some wrapping paper from Target but I thought it would be perfect inside the drawers.
To line them, I just cut a piece of paper just a little too large for the bottom of the drawer, cleaned out the drawer really well, and laid a thin layer of Mod Podge down, being careful not to get ANY on the sides (which I did and had to wipe off with a damp cloth). Then I fit the paper in, making sure the stripes were straight. Then I smoothed out as many bumps as I could with a credit card. This wrapping paper is pretty flimsy so they won't all come out, as you can probably see.
I let it dry, cut the excess off with an exacto knife, and laid another layer of Mod Podge over the top of the paper to seal it. It's a pretty cute combo, no?
And now my desk is finally complete.
How do you like it!? Did I hype it up too much? I know it's a pretty simple desk but I love the change. I think it's fitting in nicely with my filing cabinet and dried Billy buttons. Unfortunately the rest of the room is still a disaster. I can't wait to get started on my next project for the room!
