DIY paper drawer liners

It’s been WAY too long since I’ve posted. The Generes household has been busy:

I sanded, primed and painted it high-gloss Vermilion by Martha Stewart the same way I painted this piece for a client. Once I had given it 72 hours to dry, I added this ring-pull hardware, which have an Asian feel. Instead of drilling holes and screwing them in. You drill one hole, hammer the long rod through, then hammer and file it down in the back. It’s incredibly sturdy.
