The Joy of Lining Vintage Drawers and Cabinets

For the love of vintage drawers and cabinets, we're always on the look-out for glorious papers! Whether new, pages from a well-worn book or vintage sheet music, we here at Beekeeper's Cottage in Leesburg, Virginia are passionate about adding finishing touches to nightstands, dressers and cabinets.

When we're getting ready to line a drawer or cabinet we always do the following:

Step 1: Use a mild fresh cleaning solution to thoroughly clean the surface.
Step 2: Prepare the chosen paper by trimming and checking sizing.
Step 3: Butter 1 or 2 pieces at a time with wallpaper paste. Press pieces into place with plastic trowel.
Step 4: Leave drawers and cabinet doors open to dry.
Step 5: Brush on a clear sealer to finish.
