How to upgrade plastic drawers

We all know those plastic storage drawers.....they are practical and ugly! Maybe you own some! We have a few units all over the house, in the closets and the playroom. I also have some under my desk...and I can't see them anymore! While waiting to find a better solution, I made a quick upgrade! They look nicer and the mess remain hidden in the drawers! I found this idea on Madigan Made blog years ago and I kept it in the back of my mind, waiting the opportunity to use it. 

For each drawer, you need to cut a piece of thin cardboard (here 21'X7') and cover up with a nice paper. Depending of the paper thickness you use, you may not need to glue it on a cardboard. Slide it inside the drawer and fix it with some tape! That's it! Very simple!
I love the black and white pattern lines, it gives a modern twist.

The others DIY on this pics are:

I will put them back under my desk, so the sides won't be visible. But if you want a better finish, you can do the same on the drawers side.

How to make paper clip earrings

If you are stuck at work during summer time with not much to do! If you already watched all your friends vacation pictures on's time to make something fun! This is the perfect DIY for a boring working day! All the supplies to make those funny earrings are already on your desk : paper clips, scissors, glue and color paper.

Open the paper clip to make a triangle. Here are three ways to make earrings...but I'm sure there is much more options, just be creative!

Grab a magazine, a flyer...any paper which you like the color! Cut two long triangles in it.

Fold the upper part around the paper clip and glue.

Wrap the paper around and glue the end. First earrings pair: done!

Second option: cut two paper rectangles.

Fold the paper like an accordion, and then fold in the center to make a fan.

Glue the top part with the paperclip.

Third way: Cut two rectangles for each earring, one shorter than the other.

Fold them in the middle and glue them on top of each other on the paper clip. 

Cut small fringes with your scissors. And ready!

Obviously it's paper jewelry, so it won't last forever! As it just takes 5 minutes to make, it's totally ok! Now you can match any of your outfit with paper clips earrings! I hope you will have as much fun as I did making them! You can share your creation in the comments! And if you want to keep doing recycled jewelry, you can also have a look at how to make earrings with straws!
