8 Creative Ways to Decorate Your Drawers

painted drawers

Drawers are organizational features which help to keep a home neat and tidy.
However if you use a little creativity, you will start to see that there are a
number of crafty ways to dress those drawers, customizing them with your own
personal artistic style.

1. Unfinished wooden drawers can give you a wealth of decorative crafty options.
The wood can be painted with acrylic or spray paint, or treated with wood stain
to bring out the beauty of the grain.

2. Various fabrics can be adhered to both the outside and the inside of the
drawers. Paint the frame in a matching color, and then cover each drawer face in
an attractive print. Use a contrasting cloth color inside as a liner to really
make the piece pop.

3. Try covering a childís drawer set in brightly colored festive wrapping paper
to make the entire bin seem like a giant present.

4. Decoupage is another great way to dress up your drawers. Use attractive post
cards, old maps, or pictures cut out of magazines and plaster them over the face
of the drawers, using a few coats of lacquer to give them a seamless look.

5. One way to make organization decorative is to cover the surface of the drawer with decoupage images of whatís actually held inside of it. You can use cosmetic ads to label a make up drawer, or images from a garden to indicate yard supplies being held within.

6. Decorative dimensional pieces such as glass beads, rhinestones, or wooden discs can be glued along the edges of the drawers to give them a little glamour.

7. If youíre familiar with plaster of paris, you can make your own decorative
motifs which can be glued o the face of the drawer as well. Just make sure that
you use a strong adhesive.

8. Knobs, handles, or pulleys can all be exchanged, interchanged, painted, and enhanced with a variety of glued on accessories. Just make sure that you donít go overboard and make the handle unusable.
