After our colorful barn door added such a punch to the studio I wanted to keep the color party going! In the studio, I like to add touches that are low-commitment and removable, because we’re always moving things around in there for photoshoots. So adhesive vinyl was the perfect material! We have our DIY IKEA hack desks that have been so tried and true, and they deserved a little upgrade. So we created these DIY no-paint colorful drawers to dress them up a little!
Make Time: 20 Minutes
Step 1: Measure your drawer fronts.
Step 2: If you’re using a ruler and scissors, mark the size that you need on your vinyl and cut. If you’re using a paper cutter, just measure using the grid ruler on the actual cutter. If you can get your hands on a cutter, it makes this particular project way easer! (It’s also, by the way, one of my most-used craft supplies. Maybe just invest in one.)
Step 3: Peel away the top edge of your vinyl and line it up on the top edge of your first drawer. Pull away the backing as you smooth it down. If you end up with bubbles, use something firm like a credit card to smooth the bubbles out toward the edges.
Step 4: Repeat with all your drawers!
I was totally afraid this was going to be a tough, long project but it ended up being one of those that comes together quickly and easily! So if you’re looking for a fun refresh give it a shot. It’s perfect for dorm rooms, kid rooms, kitchens (you can just wipe the vinyl clean!) and more. What colors would you use?! xoxo
