~DIY snakeskin drawer liners~{with duct tape}

First of all, I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have texted me, left me messages on instagram, and had our family in your thoughts and prayers.
Losing a loved one is not easy, but I am hoping with time things will get a little better.

This was a project I was working on a week or so ago.
It is so easy, if you have the supplies on hand, you can make it in 5 minutes or less.

Duct tape has really come a long way. Do you remember back when you could only buy it in silver?
Well, now, as I am sure you all know, it comes in so many fun patterns and styles.

I recently picked up the snakeskin one, the lace one, and the leopard print one.

Here is how you can update any old drawer interior with duct tape.

 I chose to update my bathroom hutch drawers that hold my makeup.
There are 2, and they are fairly small measuring about 12x12.

 The first thing you will want to do is to cut a piece of MDF a hair smaller than the size of your drawer. 

 Then simply start at the top and work your way down, row by row with the tape.

 The back does not need to be neat, as it will not show.

Once your boards are wrapped, you can slip them into your drawers for an instant update.
These can easily be changed out with different tapes.
I also like that these can be wiped down easily to keep clean.

Stay tuned for a post coming on my favorite drug store beauty products.

So cute Melaine! I'll try this with my daughter Emma's makeup drawer. :) She'll LOVE it! Hugs and prayers!

Such a clever idea! I think I will use something besides the snakeskin pattern though, because it looks so real it would startle me every time I opened the drawer! :D

Genius! Looks super, and it wipes clean really easy! Thanks for sharing this idea. I can't wait to try this. said...

This is a FABULOUS idea! I've been looking for something other than boring contact paper to do some kitchen drawers and I think this is it!! Thanks Melaine
