Storage Drawers

This tutorial is about making more storage for your home.Who doesn’t need more storage?? Lots of people store unused items under their bed but sometimes those are difficult to retrieve when needed. Don’t ask me how I know this! Heresay! hehe
Anyway, I had these 2 odd dresser drawers left from a project so I decided to make some under the bed storage. We painted one of the drawers white , one black and added casters to the corners so they can be easily pulled out from under the bed and then returned.

The first drawer I lined, the white one, I used black and white check wrapping paper, just thin cheap wrapping paper. You could use left over wallpaper, wrapping paper, contact paper, sheets out of an old book! Lots of things would work. I adhered this wrapping paper to the drawer with liquid starch as my gluing agent. I’ve used starch for numerous projects over the years. Liquid starch  works great in a project such as this. Advantages? Cheap, the leftover starch can be used again( I pour mine right back in the bottle), very forgiving. It will  even adhere fabric to a wall and will stay for years !This project is quick , easy and useful! Here are  the “tools of the trade” and the first drawer completed!

    That is just ingenious. I love how you've dressed them up with fabric, and great tip on the liquid starch. We can't fit storage under our beds, but they would be great for other spots. Thanks for sharing the tutorial. It's practical and pretty.Cheers,Lisa x
