Plastic Drawer Makeover

I've already started organizing and redecorating my room for the next school year.  While sitting at my desk the other night I looked over at my sterilite containers that hold my paper supplies and thought I should decorate these and take them to school.  I grabbed some scrapbook paper, a paper cutter, clear adhesive and my laminator.  Cut the strips to fit inside the drawers and secured them with roll-on scrapbook adhesive.  The tops of these containers were yucky.  One had a heart stenciled too it from when it belonged to my daughter.  I laminated the pieces for the tops, secured them and I was done.  The whole project took about 20 minutes.  It took longer for me to decide which paper to use.  These container hold the different papers we use throughout the year.

  2. Thanks...your inspiration is what I need to get going. I have a lot of paper and if it just takes 20 minutes, there's no reason not to get started.
