Another Nursery Project - Fabric Drawer Liners

First things first, here is an updated photo of the little Cheeze Man.  He is modeling the first use of the Critter Community fabric on the changing pad that I made for him here.

Well, here is another use of the fabric in what I think is a pretty creative little project.

The Before
We were so lucky to be spoiled with some pretty fancy schmancy furniture for the nursery, but if you look at the photo above, the inside the of the drawers were just too plain.

The After
Rather than use just any old drawer liners, we used the fabulous colorful critters to brighten up the space.  Besides, I'll take any excuse I can get to buy more fabric :)

After a bit of brainstorming, we decided to do this project with just a few simple tools and supplies.  First we measured the drawers and cut a piece of cardboard to size.  Then, the fabric was cut a few inches larger all around and wrapped around the cardboard. It was then glued into place with some tacky glue.  That's it!  The end!  Project completed!  The best thing of all is that we can change out the fabric quite easily when the time comes and the perfect wood inside the dresser remains protected like new.

Now, rather than getting that depressed, time to do laundry feeling when I get to the bottom of the drawer, I can smile and discover a new woodland critter.   Pretty cool, huh?
