Before And After: Papering Drawers For Pennies

Even though we try our best to only keep the bare essentials on hand as far as kitchen tools and utensils go, that doesn't mean that what remains, even if organized should be shown off to company. Our IKEA island has clear front drawers that face our living room and we were tired of showing off our pastry tips, spices and even DVD collection to company!

We spent right around $5 on this project and purchased paper from our local Paper Source. Any paper would do, even left over wrapping paper. The green matches throw pillows on our sofa and even our dog bed, all the while still making the kitchen feel fresh and delightful.

We really don't know what's taken us so long to make the change, it's far more refreshing to sit on the couch and enjoy a night of TV watching or fellowship with friends and not notice that your dried chopped onions or bag of potato starch is staring at you!
