Personalise Cheap Plastic Storage With Patterned Paper Inserts

Plastic drawers are great for storage. They’re easy to clean and move (especially if they have wheels), but don’t look the best. If you have plastic storage that’s an eyesore in your home, here’s how to give it a facelift.

You probably already have everything you need: cardboard, patterned paper (like wrapping paper), glue, and scissors. Depending on your drawers, you may also need a bit of tape to secure the insert to the front of the drawer.

Once you have all your supplies, cut the cardboard so that it covers the front of the drawer. Cut the paper for each insert, leaving about two inches extra (beyond the size of the cardboard) on each side. Fold the paper over the cardboard, gluing the extra onto the back of the cardboard. Slide into the front of your plastic drawers and secure with tape if needed. If the sides of your drawers are visible too, you can make inserts for each side of the drawer using the same process.
