I've seen some savvy blogs where they reveal their child's nursery or big kid room and they feature the inside of the dresser drawers. Fully lined. In adorable fabric. If you know anything about me it is that I am a sucker for details. M would definitely consider this a fault of mine. I say it makes us a better team. ;) Every big picture needs some attention to details!
So over the weekend I picked up some fun fabric and set out to line the twins' dresser drawers. I kind of followed some tutorials on Pinterest but mostly winged it with my Modge Podge. I finished the drawers on the dresser and nightstand (more on that later) in two nap times. Lets call it 4 hours.
|Here is what I started with. Some weird marble looking laminate line drawers.|
|First I removed the old lining. It peeled right off.|
|Then I Modge Podged the bottom. It dries super quick so I had to lay the fabric in sections, not all at once.|
|Because the fabric stretched out when glued down M had to razor the extra fabric off. This was a huge pain. We learned to cut the fabric a 1/4 inch shorter than what it measured to avoid this with the other drawers.|

I think they turned out pretty cute and every time I open the drawers I get satisfaction out of the cute attention to detail! That's worth something, right M?
On a side note, do you think I should paint the round mirror white? The wood doesn't match the stain on the dresser and I'm not sure if that bothers me. Actually it does bother my "matchy matchy" type A self. Does it bother you? What would you do?
