DIY drawer lining

Do you need an excuse to buy that incredibly cute wrapping paper you've just noticed in the store? (I often do.) Here it is: make some plans to line the drawers in your home. It's easy, fast and ...pretty :)
So you just grab your favorite gift wrapping paper, scissors and measuring tape and approach one of the drawers in your house that need some .. ekhm, attention. :)

You'll need to empty that drawer first. Make it quick, because mess can become intimidating if you stare at it for too long ;)

Cut the wrapping paper to the dimensions of the drawer and put it into the drawer. You can use double side adhesive tape to make it stay put (I did not).

If you want to make it last longer, you can cover it by a transparent plastic shelf liner. I used the Variera drawer liner from Ikea (I may just as well admit I'm an Ikea addict, as you will probably notice it someday anyway...)

Now the drawer looks niiice, doesn't it? All you need to do now is return the stuff into the drawer. This probably means you will want to organize it first, while you're already at it.
Well, wasn't this a good trick to lure you into cleaning ... So, did it work?
