ugly plastic drawers, upgrade

Ugly plastic drawers.

Who decided that we should use Tupperware as furniture?

This one is supposed to hold miscellaneous hair, makeup and accessories and it's fugly. Tried to paint it this past summer. Fail. Paint just chips and peels right off, duh.

Four months later...

I measured and cut up some leftover fabric scraps from a floor pillow project, slapped a layer of Mod Podge on the drawers, stuck fabric on and put 3 or 4 more layers of Mod Podge on each drawer as a finish, waiting about 10-15 minutes between each coat. Sanded quickly with super fine grain sandpaper and that was that. Still a little ugly, but at least it's been crafted upon.
