Craft Box Upcycle

Craft Box Upcycle, Before

I got these drawers from WH Smith last week (it was 60 percent off, yay!) for storing my ever-growing collection of craft materials. But it was a tad too ‘sweet’ for our room (you’ll see why in the picture later), so I decided to give it a little DIY love.

Ta-da! I pasted black-and-white stripy fabric on the edges, painted the faces of the drawers with black acrylic paint and gloss medium, and replaced the ribbon handles with embroidered ribbons.

See? This is why I had to change the look of the drawers; the original design was too sweet for these Mexican wrestlers and AT-AT!
