WALLPAPER DRAWER LINERS - part 2


This is the second part I wrote about how I lined these drawers with wallpaper. Below I will explain how I adhered this folded wallpaper to the wood drawer so it wouldn't move or come out.




Part 1 showed you how to cut and fold your drawer liner.
Part 2 is how to adhere non pre-pasted wallpaper in your drawers.


You can buy a bucket of wallpaper paste
or you can use double sided tape.


Your drawer has to be dust free before you start.


I run a strip along the front and back edge of the drawer bottom. 


Next I run strips along the papers edge on the front and back flaps. 


Inside the drawer, start exposing the stick side of the tape. 


Now drop your paper liner into the drawer, smoothing from the center out to the exposed tape.


Next remove the tape backing on the front and back flaps. 



One at a time, press the front and back flaps into place.
Always start in the center and work your way to the outer edges.



Here is the front edge once smoothed out and stuck into place. 



Now it's time for the side flaps. As before stick your double side
 tape to the top inside edge of the side flap, expose the sticky side and press it into place.

There is your completed drawer lining. 


I chose not to trim the excess paper on this job because the
 extra volume adds a pillowy or padded effect to
 the sides which I wanted. If I was using a pre-pasted
 paper and gluing it in, I would trim the excess.
