Messy drawers getting you down? You no longer have to spend another day rummaging through unruly junk drawers. With some cardboard and character expressing contact paper you can turn any drawer into a neat and well organized one.
Here's a quick and easy way to get those messy drawers organized.
You Will Need
* A tape measure
* Gift wrapping paper or contact paper
* Double-sided tape
* A straight edte
* A craft knife
* Sturdy cardboard
Step 1: Measure the drawer
Measure the inside height, width, and depth of the inside of the drawer.
Step 2: Measure and cut paper
Measure and cut the wrapping paper or contact paper to fit the inside bottom of the drawer. Adhere it with the double-sided tape.
Step 3: Cut a strip of cardboard
Cut a strip of cardboard to the inside length and depth of your drawer with the craft knife.
Step 4: Cut slots
Measure in one-third of the length of the strip from each side and cut ¼-inch wide notches through the bottom half of the strip.
Step 5: Cut vertical dividers
Measure and cut two more cardboard strips equal to the inside width and depth of the drawer. Cut ¼-inch notches at their midpoints, from the top down.
Wrap the three cardboard strips with more wrapping or contact paper, cutting out space at the notches.
Step 6: Fit dividers together
Fit the notches in the shorter cardboard strips perpendicularly into the notches in the long strip and fit the divider into your drawer.
Step 7: Add dividers as needed
Add or remove dividers as you need to, customizing the drawer for your needs.
