Plastic Sterilite Storage Drawers Renovation

These drawers are just an eye-sore, in my opinion, so I took it upon myself to do something about it and make something as drab and bland as this look chic and fresh without a lot of money out of my pocket. This re-boot is something I did quite some time ago, but I just now remembered to share it with all of you! Woops! I’m a bit spacey sometimes, I do apologize. Also, I apologize for there not being any before or in-progress photos. When I started this, I did not, for whatever crazy reason, think to document it very well. That being said, it’s fairly straight forward and that’s why I decided to go ahead and share it with you. I was SO excited when I finished this because it turned out way better than I thought it would!


What You’ll Need:

  • Spray Paint
  • 3 sheets of scrapbook paper (for this size)
  • Mod-Podge
  • Sterilite storage drawers

First, I took out all the drawers and spray painted the white plastic and then left it outside to dry for about an hour.

While I was waiting for the frame to dry, I began cutting pieces of scrapbook paper to fit in the drawers and on the top. I mod-podged (love this stuff!) on the inside of the drawers, first on the drawer and then along the back of the scrapbook paper to seal it. Do the same for the top. Allow them to dry.


And you’re done! This is a super easy project that you can get done in under 2 hours. Really the work you do only takes about 10-15 minutes and the rest is drying time. Now you see how easily you can turn those drab and boring white storage drawers into something fun and interesting!

    I was wondering which paper did you use?
