Upcycle Storage Containers

I have these 3 drawer storage containers several places in our home. Sometimes I like that I can see what’s in the drawer, and other times I do not. I came up with an easy and inexpensive way to upcycle the drawers – hiding what’s inside and giving it a face lift at the same time.

You’ll need the following supplies:
Drawer(s) you want to upcycle
Contact paper of your choice
Regular paper/butcher paper
Electrical Tape
Razor blade


I used butcher paper to trace the front of my drawer to make a pattern.

I measured the top down to the handle, and it was about 2 1/2″. The indent portion of the bottom half of the drawer would take more contact paper than the upper portion. I needed to cut my pattern in 1/2 to accommodate this.

I cut my pattern out.

I then traced my pattern onto the back of the contact paper and cut the contact paper.

I pulled off the backing and put both 1/2 on the front of the drawer.

I used the white electrical tape to cover the lines of the two sections.

I trimmed off the extra contact paper using a razor blade/Xacto knife.

Here it is all finished, and I love the way it turned out!
