I think it’s the little details that help add personalty to a home.
Details are the icing on the cake, the cherry on the sundae, they are what make a house special and distinctive.
Take my drawers for example.

Most of my drawers have been lined with paper for added pizzazz. It’s such a simple and easy thing to do!
In this dresser, which is in my dining room, I’ve used some black and white checkerboard contact paper attached with double stick tape.
This drawer is in my little china cabinet, also in the dining room. It’s lined with blue and yellow toile.
I used a vintage wallpaper remnant to line this drawer.
I’ve decoupaged the sides of the drawers in this little white table with some toile tissue paper and then I used some red toile wallpaper to line the inside.
Here are some ideas for what to use to line your drawers:
- wrapping paper
- scrapbook paper
- wallpaper remnant
- old maps
- book pages
- contact paper (it’s not just for shelves)
To adhere the paper you can use anything from double stick tape to mod podge. Mod podge will be more permanent and if you apply a coat on top of the paper it will make it easier to clean. Use double stick tape if you’d like something less permanent.
Perk up those drawers by lining them with some pretty paper. It’s really easy!
It’s the little details that make a house into a home.
