A little bit of sunshine

Sometimes in the middle winter, I need a little summer.
A little bit of sunshine.
Pin ItI think at some point we all do!

My kitchen was a little drab and dreary so I decided to add some serious color.
I found this adorable little dresser at it was love at first sight!

The insides are old.
The entire thing is old antique.
 I decided that the inside of the drawers deserved to be just as pretty as the outside.
 Oh dear. Choosing the fabric was a daunting task.
The Prince Charming collection has just the perfect colors,
 but I finally settled on the
Thank you Joel Dewberry!

I cut a piece the size of the inside of the drawer. Laid it inside the drawer, and traced the design of the top two drawers onto it and then cut it out.

 Then I grabbed my best friend....

And did a little painting. Not too much, just enough to make it sticky.
 I started at one end and just added a bit more Mod Podge little by little as I rolled out the fabric.
This helped me to ensure a smooth fit.
Ahh, so much better.

Does your Winter need a little sunshine?

I have never thought of using fabric for drawer liners - thanks! And the ModPodge trick is brilliant!
