DIY: dresser drawer liners

I found these babies at a yard sale.  People sometimes have no idea what they have!  I knew this dresser set was worth the purchase as soon as I opened the drawers and saw this:

Dovetailing makes me HAPPY!  And so does original hardware.  Jackpot!

So, even though the dressers are in great shape as far as structure, they need a bit of cosmetic work. The insides of the drawers are a bit rough, so I decided old fashioned drawer liners with a twist might be a fun project.  Here's the before:

And the glorious after:

Thank you Amanda for the great wrapping paper website!

I am so happy I actually finished something!  If you ever decide to do this for yourself, I have a few pointers.  Use thick paper and cut your paper a quarter of an inch smaller than the actual inside dimensions.  Thin paper wrinkles and bubbles (I had the hardest time smoothing out all those out).  Paper also expands a bit when it hits the decoupage glue.

Next step...paint.
