Would You Like To Peek Inside My Drawers?

Happy Monday morning to you!  I hope you have a fantastic weekend.  I had some non-condo-related things I had to tend to this weekend, so I didn’t get very far on any projects around the condo.  But late yesterday afternoon I decided to work on a little project in my kitchen.

One thing I decided to do was to make the inside of my cabinets and drawers prettier.  That way, maybe I’ll be more motivated to keep them organized.  Makes sense, right?

I didn’t get very far on this, but would you like to take a peek inside my drawer?

Go ahead…give it a little tug. Don’t be shy!

Yeah!  I love color!  Fun, bright, cheerful color!

It’s not shelf paper.  In fact, it’s not paper at all.  It’s fabric.  Yep…outdoor canvas, to be specific.  It was on sale 50% off at JoAnn, and I couldn’t resist this fun striped canvas (I have a thing for stripes) filled with every color that I love.  It was meant to be.  I’m certain of that.

More kitchen organizing and pretty-on-the-inside goodness to come!

    That looks great!  Did you glue it down or what??  I have that vinyl type shelf liner in my kitchen drawers, but one of these days I have a pantry re-do planned.  (Of course, one of these days might become one of these years!)

    That is a fantastic idea!  I would have never thought to use indoor/outdoor fabric.  Love how cheery it looks.  What a fun little surprise every time you open the drawer!

    Ooooh I love that! Great colors, and yes it would totally motivate me to keep the drawers tidy so I could see more of the stripes.

    Do you find canvas easier to clean than traditional wood drawer bottoms?  I'm just curious how it would hold up with regular wear and tear, but regardless of that, it looks great!  Love the spice of color!

    How cute it that.  If I had a dresser I would do that in an instant.  Gotta love the sales at JoAnn Fabrics!

    No, it's definitely not easier to clean than the (painted) wood drawer bottom.  This little project was strictly about looks, and adding some color.  In fact, I applied the fabric with wallpaper adhesive, and after it was completely dry, I gave it two coats of Polycrylic clear finish.

    I like the color and the design of your kitchen. It looks very elegant. I like to know the design of your butcher block cause im currently looking for a good design. I guess you can really help me about it. Thanks!

    Just a thought….why not cover cardboard with the fabric and seal it with the mod podge so you can take it out and change when you want?
