Step One – Find the Perfect Print

Many ask us if wallpaper can be used as a drawer liner and the answer is yes! Small spaces, such as a desk or dresser drawer, offer the perfect opportunity to try bright and bold peel and stick wallpaper patterns in your home.

Our self-adhesive, removable wallpaper can adhere to any smooth surface, so applying it to your drawer is as easy as peel, place, and embrace the possibilities.

Step Two – Measure

With the backliner still on, place a small section of your wallpaper in the inside of your drawer and roughly measure how much product you will need for your project.

Step Three – Cut

Using scissors, carefully cut the paper off the roll, leaving enough room for error. A straight line isn’t required here. You will use a precision knife in a later step.

Step Four – Smooth

Slowly peel away a small section of the paper from the back liner. Start at the back of the drawer and firmly press the paper into place with your fingertips, removing the rest of the backliner as you go. Use your squeegee to smooth out any air bubbles and help secure the paper into place.

Step Five – Cut Excess Paper

Using a precision knife, carefully cut away the excess paper from the corners and edges. Repeat the same steps for the next drawer and enjoy your new makeover!
