Storage Drawers (DIY – Duct Tape Crafts)

Storage Drawers (DIY – Duct Tape Crafts) – Update (and hide the content!) of a storage drawer in under an hour with Duct Tape

Storage Drawers (DIY - Duct Tape Crafts)

We have finally started with my daughter’s actual bedroom (the rest is still a bit of a secret!) But for today’s post I am sharing a quick makeover I gave an old Storage Drawers Unit , using Duct Tape.

This Storage Unit is part of the deal of updating her bedroom, just not IN the bedroom… trust me on this 😉

I have had this particular Unit for years in which I keep a lot of, mostly junk, but necessary papers etc as well.

It used to be hidden under my desk, but since I no longer have a craft room, the desk moved and there is no space for this, but I do need to keep it around.

Right, so if you recognized the Duct Tape, which I picked up at Builders Warehouse – the very same colors, it might be from these Storage Containers which I shared a couple of weeks ago.

All of this goes into one area and the recycled containers and the Storage Drawers are puling everything together.

I kept the framework black as the shelves which are close to where I am putting this Storage Unit is black and one of the main colors in the room(s).

Again not much to tell (Duct Tape really does it all for you!).

But a few pointers :

1.) After I wrapped the Duct Tape all round the front, I used a craft knife and gently slit open where the handles are
2.) I then added small pieces of the alternate Duct Tape to the drawer handles to make them a little more visible
3.) Last but not least, working with a curve was child’s play with the Duct Tape as it is a little stretchy (and definitely not as finicky as craft paper, which I first wanted to use!)

I live in Europe and we don't have any of those pretty patterns and colors of duct tape but my sister sent me some beautiful tape at Xmas. Now I know what I will do with it!! Thanks for sharing. BTW- how many rolls of tape did you use for this project?

Lisa, I used about 3 meters (around 120 inches ) of the pink tape and half ( 1 1/2 meters ) of the blue tape. I only did the fronts and around the corners, not the whole shelf, so when you pull out the shelf, one can still see through the clear parts on the sides - hope this helps, and have fun decorating yours !
